Empowering Formerly Incarcerated Women Through Pottery

Updated: Apr 27, 2023

The People's Pottery Project's mission is to empower and give an opportunity to formerly incarcerated women, trans and non-binary individuals. The non-profit ceramic business makes it possible for participants to get paid training and make a living wage while being part of this healing community.

"Through our collective work, members gain a platform to connect to others, share their stories, and ultimately transform dominant narratives about those who have experienced incarceration." - The People's Pottery Project.

In the video below, Ilka Perkins, one of the founders of the People's Pottery Project, shares the importance and the healing power of community after incarceration.
