Look At Me: A Performance by Incarcerated Survivors of Gender-Based Violence
Wednesday, October 27, 2021, 6:00 PM until 8:00 PM
Over 94% of people inside of women’s prisons have experienced gender-based violence. Yet all-too-often they are left out of conversations about domestic violence. The Women’s Justice Institute invites you to join survivors from Logan Prison as they present a series of performances and poetry they are writing and performing for Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
We will watch the premiere of their recorded performances and then hear from a panel of the performers, live from inside of the prison. We will also learn about upcoming legislation aimed at reducing punitive responses to survivors of gender-based violence.
This is a free event. However, in lieu of a ticket price, if you wish to support criminalized survivors, we encourage you to donate to this fundraiser. The funds will be divided between the authors/performers of the pieces and the WJI survival fund. You can donate here: https://www.gofundme.com/f/look-at-me-seeing-incarcerated-survivors
Please feel free to invite friends to attend this event. The performances are truly incredible. For questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
