The Prison Education Project (PEP) is excited to partner with Interrogating Incarceration, a new student-run group on Washington University’s campus for undergraduate and graduate students that was recently featured in Student Life. The group’s mission is to create a space for students passionate about issues around mass incarceration to discuss relevant topics and raise awareness on campus. The group will also fundraise for the PEP Re-Entry Group, which works with formerly incarcerated PEP students to help with their re-entry, transition, and re-integration into the St. Louis community.
Megan Arden is the founder and current president of Interrogating Incarceration. Also on the group’s executive board are Vice President of Media Ben Goodfriend, Vice President of Community Engagement Megan Lemaire, Vice President of Fundraising Elena Lopez, Vice President of Communications Alia Nahra, and Vice President of Administration Kennedy Young.
To stay up-to-date with the latest news and information, follow Interrogating Incarceration on Facebook and sign up for their mailing list and monthly newsletter. In the meantime, you can also check out their January and February newsletters. Any questions for the group can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
