The Fire Inside 10th Anniversary Event Coming Nov. 5

On Sunday, November 5th, The California Coalition for Women Prisoners (CCWP) will be celebrating the 10 year anniversary of The Fire Inside newsletter with our honored guest, Alice Walker. Ms. Walker will read from her new book We Are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For: Light in a Time of Darkness, which will be released on November 1st.
CCWP is especially excited that Alice Walker, a writer who has illuminated the voices and experiences of women of color for the past four decades, will be speaking at an event which celebrates the writings of women prisoners in California for the past ten years. The Fire Inside began publication in 1996 with feature stories about lack of healthcare in prison and has continued publishing on a quarterly basis over the last ten years covering a wide variety of topics such as compasionate release, death row, SHU, work in prison, HIV/AIDS in prison, parole, and others. The Fire Inside is the only continuously publishing newsletter devoted to the issues that impact women prisoners and it is written through a collaboration between women prisoners, former prisoners, family members and advocates.
