We Believe:

– Healthy communities do not need prisons. Education is a cornerstone of healthy communities.

– Blackness, poverty, migration status, gender non-conformity, queerness, disability, and addiction are NOT crimes.

– The routes to higher education should be forged through compassion, collective practice, and community engagement.

Higher education is a practice of personal transformation and civic responsibility.
