WORDSUNCAGED

WordsUncaged facilitates art and narrative therapy throughout the state correctional system in California. Working collaboratively with artists and writers in captivity, we aim to shift the narratives that surround mass incarceration. We believe that incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people are not a problem to be solved by society but, rather, a population uniquely positioned to help solve the many problems in our communities.

We currently serve over 400 incarcerated writers, artists, and performers in Lancaster, Calipatria and Donovan prisons, as well as hundreds of family and community members throughout Southern California.
