Mission Statement

Freedom Project strengthens our community through supporting the transformation of prisoners into peacemakers. We offer trainings in concrete skills of nonviolence leading to reconciliation with ourselves, our loved ones, and the community. Our work addresses the healing of relationships ruptured by violence and the forging of community founded on genuine safety through connection.

Description

Freedom Project is an innovative educational organization serving inmates and those recently released back into the community. Our programs focus on Nonviolent Communication and mindfulness.

Nonviolent Communication (NVC) is a practical tool used worldwide for over four decades to help people transform blame, anger and criticism into understanding, effective communication and peaceful resolution of conflict. The basic skills of NVC require mindfulness in their application. Mindfulness helps people become aware of their thoughts and actions before responding.

Currently, we provide regular programming at the following prisons:

* Monroe Correctional Complex (Twin Rivers Unit) in Monroe, WA

* Airway Heights Correctional Complex in Spokane, WA

* Clallam Bay Correctional Complex in Clallam Bay, WA

We provide occasional programming at the following prisons:

* Washington Corrections Center for Women at Purdy in Gig Harbor, WA

* Mission Creek Corrections Center for Women in Belfair, WA

* Monroe Correctional Complex (Minimum Security Unit & Washington State Reformatory) in Monroe, WA

Freedom Project hopes to expand its programs to encompass major prisons throughout Washington State.
