Welcome to OPEEP
We are building prison-to-college pathways through innovative teaching and collaborative inside-out learning in prison settings. Quality education is a right, not a privilege.
– 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.
