For the past thirteen years, Power Inside has been bringing women in Baltimore together to create collective spaces for healing, growth, and change. We embrace our roots in feminist consciousness-raising and convene women's groups in prisons, jails, shelters, and on the streets. On the evening of July 23, members of Power Inside will facilitate the simple yet radical feminist work of women's circles, through telling and listening to stories from women whose every day experience is about being "gutsy". We will also invite participants to reconnect the personal to the political by sharing their own stories. We ask that participants come on time (re: early) and be prepared to stay for the entire event. Space will be limited.
Power Inside (www.powerinside.org) serves women impacted by incarceration, street life and abuse. We offer direct services, leadership development, advocacy, and public education to help women build self-sufficiency, heal from violence, and end the cycles of poverty and incarceration. We seek safety, dignity and justice for women and their families in Baltimore.
