WE BELIEVE IN TRANSFORMATION

The mission of POPS the Club is to create a safe, empowering space in high schools for the children and other loved ones of the incarcerated. POPS uses self-expression, self-empowerment and community engagement to transform stigma and shame into hope and dignity.

POPS Club Members:

  • Share a nourishing meal.

  • Create poetry, stories, artwork and films.

  • Develop strong bonds.

  • Engage in mindfulness exercises.

POPS the Club’s young people are breaking down systemic barriers– in their minds, in their schools and in their communities. Our graduates speak powerfully of the impact POPS has had on their lives.

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

-Maya Angelou
