I can't say enough good things about our mentors at the Minnesota Prison Doula Project that have brought us to where we are today. Erica Gerrity, Rae Baker, and Rebecca Schlafer have supported and guided us through the process of implementing our work at Tutwiler. We are learning from the best!
Here are some videos that describe the work they've been doing for 12 years in Minnesota and its impacts.
We are not reinventing the wheel here in Alabama. The Minnesota program is helping us and advising us each step of the way. We will see the same impacts here. But we need your help to build our programming to the level of our mentor program. Please DONATE HERE if you feel led.
