Today we’re excited to share a great new leadership development series for people in reentry and their families: The Freedom School launched by All of Us or None, a grassroots civil rights organization fighting for the rights of formerly- and currently- incarcerated people and their families. The Freedom School is an education and training initiative for formerly incarcerated people and their families that will explore the barriers and issues they face, explore tangible solutions, and build support. The goal of the program is to help participants better understand these issues, develop solutions, and grow into community leaders.
At the Freedom School, participants will learn:
- To develop a critical understanding of the root causes of incarceration and be a part of the solution towards building real safety
- How to build support to help stay out of jail and prison
- About the history of All of Us or None, its mission, and work
The Freedom School is a once a week, 4-week long commitment. The first session will begin on Saturday, August 9th and will end on Saturday, August 27th with a Graduation Ceremony on August 30th. Classes will be held at 5833 Bancroft, Oakland, CA 94605 (Cross Street is Seminary).
