Prisoners' Justice Day Healing Circle 2022

Donazione protetta
Please help the P4W Memorial Collective fund a Prisoners’ Justice Day healing circle for former prisoners of the Prison for Women (P4W).
 
 
For years, women have gathered on Prisoners’ Justice Day at the site of P4W, located on traditional Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe territories, to mourn and build solidarity through a healing circle conducted according to Indigenous protocol. Everyone is welcome, especially women who have known prison from the inside, as well as prisoner justice supporters and all community members who want to come together for healing.
 
For this event, it is important for ex-prisoners to have the opportunity to travel to Katarokwi/Kingston from out of town. However, it is often not within their means to do so without financial support. Therefore, all money raised through this campaign will go toward ex-prisoners travel and accommodation costs. Your donations to this important event are extremely appreciated.
 
 
About a Prisoners’ Justice Day:
 
August 10 is a day to show solidarity with prisoners and remember those who have died unnecessarily — victims of murder, suicide and neglect. Prisoners’ Justice Day began on August 10 1974 in honour of Eddie Nalon, who died in the segregation unit of Millhaven Maximum Security Prison located in Bath, Ontario. It has since continued to be a day of coordinated protests, advocacy, and memorials.
 
 
About the P4W Memorial Collective:
 
The P4W Memorial Collective is a group of women ex-prisoners from the P4W who are working towards the creation of a permanent memorial garden and community space on the grounds of the P4W, in Katarokwi/Kingston, Ontario. Through their work they honor the women who lost their lives in P4W, and uplift the stories of the women who survived. They aim to raise public consciousness about injustices that continue to be perpetrated in Canadian jails and prisons, and to support resistance to carceral colonial power through coalitional decolonial abolitionist praxis amongst people with prison experience, and those who have never been inside. The group holds events at P4W each year on Prisoners’ Justice Day, where they plant the seeds of transformative justice and move closer to planting a memorial garden.
