Save the date: October 20, 2012 Film screening and 1 year anniversary celebration of Fired Up!

This September marks the 1 year anniversary of Fired Up! and it’s time to come together to celebrate our collective work and continue to nourish our grass roots so they grow strong in, through, and beyond the jail walls. We need your energy as well as life-sustaining and movement building funds!

Join us for a screening of the film Still Time, a discussion with the the central figure in the film and it’s maker, a raffle of Assata Shakur posters, snacks, and report back from our first year.

Still Time, produced by Joanna Sokolowski in collaboration with California Coalition for Women Prisoners, follows the story of LaKeisha Burton, a member of the CCWP. Incarcerated at the age of 15 and released at 35, LaKeisha must start from scratch to rebuild her life, discovering that although being out of prison can be just as unpredictable as life inside, she can still find her way back home.

Fired Up! is a grassroots network of people who have been or are currently, behind the walls of SF County Jail building community with others who are committed to breaking down the barriers those walls produce. In September 2011, two former prisoner members of California Coalition for Women Prisoners began a weekly "Personal Empowerment" group for women and male-identified people at SF County Jail. Six months later, nearly a dozen people go inside weekly and several members, who have been released, are part of our collective as it takes shape on the outside. There are members in the jail who have attended Fired Up! meetings every week since it began. Together, we seek to build a vision of community rooted in principles of healing, self-determination, and social justice movement building.
