BENEFITING: Community Partners

EVENT DATE: Sep 19, 2014

THE STORY:

Dignity and Power Now envisions a world where the over-reliance on incarceration is replaced with an emphasis on the resilience of Black and Brown communities most impacted by incarceration and state violence. The Los Angeles we are building sees incarcerated people as important members of our community, prioritizes them and their families as necessary leaders in the process of ending, as well as healing from, the national crisis of state violence.

September 18th, 2014 will be Dignity and Power Now's 2nd Birthday! We are proud of all the work we have accomplished, and we are excited about continuing to build our small but mighty organization. 50,000 dollars will support both our staff and also our programming. Thank you in advance for funding and supporting your community!

 

Current Dignity and Power Now (DPN) programs:

The Coalition to End Sheriff Violence in LA Jails is the central base-building project through which our membership engages with county officials and the sheriff’s department in order to establish and enforce independent civilian oversight of the jails. DPN recently released a proposal for such an independent review board that is being discussed by members of the LA Board of Supervisors and has been endorsed by the L.A. Times!

Freedom Harvest is a collective of artists and organizers using art to engage community on issues of incarceration, trauma, and collective resilience. We are currently in the middle of a 12 week summer workshop series. #RISEOFTHEDANDELIONS part 2, Shattering Shame, Breaking Silence

Building Resilience is a working group comprised of healthcare providers, academics, and community members, researching incarceration’s impact on mental health and advocating for alternatives to incarceration through mental health diversion programs. Dignity and Power Now’s Building Resilence has been invited to the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland to represent a report DPN has submitted, identifying racial discrimination in the Los Angeles Jail system. The shadow report is to be included in the UN review of United States compliance with the International Convention to End all forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD).

The Dignity and Power Zine is published yearly by an editorial board of academics and community members and is used to share DPN’s analysis on incarceration and community involvement. We have issued one zine so far and plan to issue the next zine in a couple months.

The Dandelion Rising Leadership Institute is a leadership development program for communities most vulnerable to incarceration. This program develops participants’ skills in effective organizing and public leadership. We have worked with over 200 students since November of 2012.
