Mission Statement

FREE! Families Rally for Emancipation and Empowerment is a women-led, grassroots collective of people with incarcerated loved ones, empowering, and mobilizing ourselves to create viable community alternatives to, and impact public policy around the destructive, profit-driven prison industry.

Our Vision is to radically change, and share in control over, institutions that currently tear apart our children, families, and communities. We believe that our families and communities can heal and become prosperous through self-determined development, and the proper allocation of a fraction of the resources wasted on warehousing our loved ones in cages in upstate New York.

Description

FREE! members learn to advocate on behalf of ourselves and our imprisoned loved ones, use media production facilities, and build powerful campaigns that changes lives!

FREE! develops leadership capacity for better navigation of the criminal IN*justice system through grassroots organizing, media, and legal training. We offer direct-service referrals for family members, and technological job skills training for formerly incarcerated persons and children "of-promise", while helping to expand the discourse around justice, family, and healthy community.
