Mission Statement

Truth Be Told is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing transformational tools for women behind and beyond bars.

Our programs provide respectful listening and creative tools for personal and spiritual growth for incarcerated women.

Description

Truth Be Told educates women in prison, helping them to face the truth of their past and develop a deeper sense of responsibility to themselves and their children. We do this by truth-telling. Specifically, we offer classes in communications skills (writing personal stories, speaking, listening, using body language), which lead to community building as women share their stories of what brought them to prison and become safe for each other.

We also offer classes in creativity including visual arts, music, and dance to help participants learn how to release pain and trauma and express feelings in ways that won’t harm themselves or others. These are time-honored ways women have used to help themselves survive emotional trauma in healthy communities - and our graduates will have tools upon their release that most were not given as children. They pass those tools on when they get home.
