Project Summary
Juliana will launch the Women’s Exchange Program at the Family Partnership Center in Poughkeepsie, New York. The program will work with women reentering society after having been incarcerated, providing support and promoting peace and conflict resolution skills in order to lower recidivism rates in Poughkeepsie. A second component of the program will engage local high school girls in workshops prepared by formerly incarcerated women with the aim of violence prevention and providing youth with alternatives to violence.
