Looking for something fun and meaningful to do after dinner this Friday?
In 2009, Wesleyan undergraduates formed the Center for Prison Education with the belief that incarcerated individuals should have access to high quality educational resources. Since then, the CPE has since brought the transformative power of the liberal arts to over 125 women and men in maximum security prisons.
Peer tutoring remains at the heart of the CPE’s work and scores of campus undergraduates have volunteered with the program, working side-by-side with their colleagues in Cheshire and York Correctional Institutions. In an effort to make this opportunity more widely available, we are asking your help to fund stipends for student tutors with limited financial means.
Please join us this Friday, March 30th, in Malcolm X House for an evening of performances to raise money towards this goal. A variety of artists will be performing, including:
– James Jeter, former CPE student
– Ahmed Badr, student spoken word artist
– Maya Donovan, singer
– Craig Gore, former CPE student
– Slavei, acapella
Come one, come all! We will be accepting donations via cash and Venmo.
