Founder/Director of Prisoners Are People Too
PRP2 Logo designed by Edreys Wajed
"You can't tell who's on the outside looking in or on the inside looking out. Perhaps, all of us are imprisoned in some way. My father, Harvey Aiken, and faithful supporter of PRP2 always said, 'People are prisoners too.' I never corrected him." (Karima Amin)
PRP2's Monthly Meetings
When PRP2 has its once monthly meetings, the community is invited to come out and experience a gathering that is warm, welcoming, and educational. The meeting topics, guest speakers, and documentary films vary from month-to-month but attendees can be certain that they will learn something new and that they will be invited to join us in our efforts to challenge those forces that are abusive to prisoners and their families and that serve to undermine the sincere reintegration efforts of formerly incarcerated people. Join us. Stand with us. Share your ideas.
