Partakers Prison Program provides mentorship to incarcerated students seeking college degrees. Participating in this program provides opportunities for the TBE community to further develop our understanding of how racism impacts our economic, social and justice systems and to engage in work to address these racial inequities. By participating in this work we hope to see our community transformed towards a deeper understanding and engagement with issues around racial justice.
