Third Tuesdays Social Justice Forum

Interfaith Prison Ministry for Women – November 21 at 7 PM

Guest Speaker: Jennifer Jackson

Jennifer Jackson is the executive director of the Interfaith Prison Ministry for Women (IPMW). On any given day, more than 2,700 women are incarcerated in NC; 76% of these women are mothers. IPMW believes all people deserve another chance, and helps women to empower themselves with tools and resources so they have that chance upon release.​ IPMW supports pre- and post-release of women and collaborates with other organizations to deliver important job and life skills to aid the women served. Over the last three decades, the organization has provided chaplaincy and transition education programs for incarcerated women at the Raleigh Unit of the NC Correctional Institution for Women (NCCIW).

This forum is a monthly series exploring social justice issues, meeting at 7:00pm in the Conference Room on the third Tuesday of every month.
