#MotivationalMonday  - Drawing inspiration from other #WomenInFilm  and female leaders many of whom inspired this post http://bit.ly/1IBw84W #wemakechange  
This is a guest post by Jennifer Fischer. As a female filmmaker, I've asked myself many times why my latest dramatic project, The wHOLE, focuses on a man in an almost exclusively male milieu. In the pilot episode, no women appear on screen until the very end of the episode, and then only for a ...

“” The LAPD and I have something in common. It has taken us both nearly 5 months to process and speak publicly about the death of Ezell Ford, though for very different reasons. More than 4.5 months...

Playful, fun ideas for plastic eggs!
1. Memory! Get 6 matching sets of anything that will fit inside the eggs (stickers, legos, change would be perfect - 2 pennies, 2 nickels, 2 dimes, 2 quarters, 2 half dollars and 2 dollar coins), a great way to also teach coi...

“I’m a women’s prison nurse,” I state as I swirl my drink at the bar. Whether it’s the bar or a family holiday gathering, here are some of the top responses that follow each time someone, usually 18–55 years of age, and white, asks me what I do for a living: “I didn’t even know prisons had ...

Mothers in prison rarely get a chance to see or touch their children — or sing them a lullaby. A group of professional musicians is helping female inmates in New York City to create those connections.

As a parent, the reason I'm making this #webseries  (http://bit.ly/thewHOLE-24) about #solitaryconfinement  and #massincarceration  in this the dignity and humanity of ALL human beings matters to me. I want my sons to live in a world that embraces #compassion  and seeks #restorativejustice  rather than torturous punishment. 

More than that, though, through creating this project I learned that JUVENILES -- CHILDREN are placed in isolation (23 hours a day in a small cell with no human contact or interaction). In many cases, this is while they AWAIT trial (not even guilty), and they stay there for months and months before their trials. As a parent who was a social justice filmmaker, I couldn't learn of this injustice and NOT make this film. 

I hope other parents will join me and say #enoughisenough  -- This is not how any human should be treated, much less children. This webseries will not only be a series, but a call to action, an engagement tool, a way to advocate for a more restorative justice process, for juveniles and adults. #halfby2030   #stopsolitary   #parenting   #bethechange

My latest project was featured on the ACLU Blog of Rights today. I am producing "The wHOLE" with Ramon Hamilton, interviewed about the show in this piece: https://www.aclu.org/blog/criminal-law-reform-prisoners-rights/whole-truth-behind-solitary-confinement #STOPsolitary   #ACLU   #solitaryconfinement   #massincarceration   #humanrights  
On any given day in America there are 80,000 people in solitary settings, not counting youth in juvenile facilities and people in jails. With no evidence-based research of its effectiveness, solitary confinement is a form of imprisonment that has been overused and abused. According to t...
