Wonderful news – the Prisoners Literature Project has been chosen by the Namaste Foundation as one of two dozen ‘inspiring nonprofits who are working toward positive change’ in criminal justice reform.

The Namaste Foundation is an organization that ‘supports exceptional nonprofits for a more beautiful world’.

There’s more information via this Namaste Foundation announcement. The PLP has also received a monetary grant from the Foundation as part of this honor, & we’d like to thank them for thinking of us & for choosing us to be featured alongside many other vital prison and criminal justice non-profit organizations.
