Honor a friend or a loved one with a gift that makes a difference for children dealing with the carceral system.

Consider celebrating the life and legacy of your friend or loved one by helping to support POPS as we transform shame and stigma into hope and healing for teens who are struggling with the Pain of the Prison System. In weekly club meetings, young people with loved ones in prison, jail, and detention discover they are not alone. Most students who attend POPS the Club meetings have dealt, or are dealing with, the incarceration of a parent, sibling, another family member, or a friend. Some have themselves experienced incarceration.

When you make a memorial gift in honor of someone who has touched your life, your generous donation will make our weekly clubs and programs possible and help us in our goal to reach more and more youth throughout the greater Los Angeles area and well beyond.

You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.
