My name is Stephanie. I’m white, I’m upper middle-class, and I hate prisons. I’ve never been incarcerated, but I’ve been in prisons, and what I walked away with (every time) was that prisons aren’t great, but a lot of the people who are incarcerated in them are wonderful. That’s where the “hates prisons” part comes in. I’m hoping to translate my hatred into positive alternatives to incarceration. I think the best way to do that is to get people thinking differently about crime and punishment, public safety, justice, etc.
Thank you for reading. If you’d like to connect, write a guest post, advertise an awesome event, tell me I’m off the mark, etc., please be in touch.
