WELCOME TO PRISONERS ARE PEOPLE TOO, INC.
"Prisoners Are People Too, Inc." is a monthly documentary film and speakers series that meets on the last Monday of the month at the Pratt-Willert Community Center, 422 Pratt Street, Buffalo, NY 14204. Originally created in 2005 to enhance the general public's awareness of prison issues, the program has grown to include networking, referrals, community building, action organizing, and camaraderie as well as community education. Through films, guest speakers and follow-up discussions, the program promotes the growth of the community's knowledge and understanding of the prison industrial complex, the plight of prisoners and prison families, and the challenges of re-entry.
PRISONERS ARE PEOPLE TOO, INC. will educate the community about issues surrounding incarcerated and formerly incarcerated individuals with emphasis on the humanity of both the victim and the offender.
PRISONERS ARE PEOPLE TOO, INC. will provide networking opportunities, referrals to service providers, and community building by redirecting civil, social, and legal barriers, and educating the community at large. Documentary film screenings as well as live guest speakers, will focus on issues surrounding these goals, resulting in education, discussion, debate and reform.
The incarcerated, formerly incarcerated, victims, and the community at large will all benefit from the implementation of our mission.
