Mission Statement

Voices Behind Walls (VBW) promotes creative expression and education for youth, adults, and families involved with the justice system.

Description

Voices Behind Walls (VBW) promotes creative expression and education for youth, adults, and families involved with the justice system.

The program is structured as a volunteer organization and has been around since 2003. Co-founded and currently lead by Lecroy 'Lee' Rhyanes, the story starts with an invitation from co-founder, professor, poet, Emmy Perez, to audio record poetry from youth that were incarcerated at a juvenile detention center in El Paso, Texas. Eventually the program would grow to include involvement at other sites and programs in Texas and New Mexico counties.
