Twitter Party Topics:
Women’s Prison Association (WPA) works with women at all stages of criminal justice involvement, promoting alternatives to incarceration and helping women who live in the community to avoid arrest or incarceration by making positive changes in their lives. We’ll be chatting about what they do to help and learn more about their #2ndChances campaign. Running from May through September of 2014, the campaign features a video series of personal second chance stories shared by women at WPA, staff, community members and celebrities. You can share your own second chance stories by uploading your videos here. Find out more about the work WPA is doing by watching the video below.
Twitter Party Prizes*:
Alysia Reiner partnered with Suz Somersall of KiraKira, a handcrafted jewelry company, to create a limited edition celestial inspired pave sapphire locket bearing the sentiments of WPA’s tagline, “Strengthen Empower Connect,” - a beautiful, creative representation of WPA’s work with women. WPA is grateful to receive 100% of the profits from this beautiful collaboration. Each one is valued at $100 and we have teamed up to give away 6 at the party, as well as two signed copies of Orange is the New Black, written by Piper Kerman.
