California Coalition for Women Prisoners (CCWP) is a grassroots abolitionist organization, with members inside and outside prison. In this workshop, CCWP will present on the history and current status of their work, including Writing Warriors, a project that connects 60 members inside and outside in a letter writing program.
Participants will create an original watercolor painting, inspired by the current OXY ARTS exhibition EJ Hill: Wherever we will to root. The watercolors will be sent to members of the Writing Warriors program inside prison.
This workshop will provide an introduction to CCWP’s work, with opportunities to follow up by joining the Writing Warriors program, or joining one of their local chapters.
This program is made possible by generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
