Are you looking for a way to give back this Holiday season? We love what the Prison Yoga Project is doing.
A 2017 survey of prisoners found that roughly 89% suffered trauma as children or young adults; 24% were symptomatic for PTSD. This trauma is a significant contributor to the types of behavior that lead to incarceration. Unaddressed, this trauma also contributes to the likelihood of a prisoner's re-arrest after release. In fact, 76% of released prisoners are re-arrested within five years.
You can help break this cycle. Your support of the Prison Yoga Project will help us reach more prisoners with trauma-informed yoga and mindfulness practices that help them recognize triggered reactions, and give them the tools to pause, reflect, and respond appropriately.
Join their campaign to raise $20,000 by December 31st and your gift will be matched by a group of generous donors – resulting in twice the impact.
