Voices Unbarred centers the voices of people impacted by incarceration, and collaborates with theatre practitioners and policy organizations, to creatively reimagine the prison system and advocate for change. Through theatre and justice workshops, script writing, and interactive performances, participants affected by incarceration in the DC area are given a platform to share their stories, tackle complex issues, and lead the criminal justice reform movement.
WHAT'S NEW WITH US?
BIG TRANSITION FOR VOICES UNBARRED!
We have big news! We are so excited to announce that beginning in January 2022, Lori Pitts, Voices Unbarred’s Founder and Executive Director, will become Ally Theatre Company’s new Artistic Director, where she will continue to run Voices Unbarred as the sole program. Check out Ally's press release by clicking the button below for more information.
Voices Unbarred’s programming will continue with no interruption. This transition will just allow us to continue the powerful work we are doing with people who are currently and formerly incarcerated with more support, stronger resources, and a greater reach in the community. We are so excited for the new opportunities this will bring for us and our participants!
