Arte desde adentro

La Gente’s Free Your Mind project is aimed at incarcerated Latinos in California prisons. La Gente sends them letters, issues, and reading materials and in return the men write back with their stories and sometimes art pieces. La Gente is planning on expanding to include incarcerated women and children. However, due to cuts there has been a limit to what is sent.
