Faith Talks: When Mom’s in Prison

Breaking the Cycle of Incarceration

Join the live recording of the Faith Talks podcast on June 16, at 2:00 p.m. ET. Host Jennifer R. Farmer will interview BRITTANY BARNETT, founder of the pioneering organization Girls Embracing Mothers (GEM). GEM is dedicated to breaking the cycle of incarceration for daughters of incarcerated mothers.

GEM supports women and girls impacted by the criminal justice system through empowerment-based programs that strengthen the relationship between young girls and incarcerated mothers. It also offers reentry-based training for mothers who are incarcerated. GEM’s goal is to break the cycle of incarceration and support girls and women in their efforts to lead healthy, healed, and whole lives.

In addition to Barnett, Farmer will interview EMILY JONES, United Women in Faith’s executive for racial justice, who will discuss our work interrupting the school to prison pipeline and our support of GEM.
