Dear Friends and Family,
I have recently started training for the March 2015 LA Marathon, and am thrilled to be doing so with InsideOut Writers,the truly amazing organization I have been volunteering with for the past few months. IOW brings creative writing classes into Los Angeles County Juvenile Halls as a means of fulfilling its mission of "reduc[ing] the juvenile recidivism rate by providing a range of services that evolves to meet the needs of currently and formerly incarcerated youth and young adults. Using creative writing as a catalyst for personal transformation, these young people are empowered with the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully re-integrate into our communities, becoming advocates for their future."
I fimly believe in everything IOW stands for, and as an IOW teacher, I have seen first-hand the powerful and positive effects of providing a safe space of creativity, healing and self-exploration within the living units of L.A. County juvenile detention facilities. Please join me in supporting IOW and this most amazing cause.
