(TOTALLY) TRUE THINGS: A SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS STORYTELLING SHOW - We Are Still Human written and performed by Helena Lewis: stories about incarcerated women click here

We Are Still Human - We Are Still Human explores through narrative story telling, poetry, and monologues the marginalized voices of incarcerated women. Over the past three decades, the number of women incarcerated has increased by eight-hundred percent. This increase can be attributed to untreated mental illness, substance abuse, social and economic disparities, and tougher sentencing laws for women's drug offenses. However, the current correctional system does not take into consideration the gendered needs of women who are incarcerated and how their reentry into society can be hindered by unresolved grief and loss. Helena D. Lewis is a theatrical scholar-practitioner who uses qualitative research and social work theories to illuminate the nuances of social justice issues that impact marginalized and incarcerated voices. After obtaining her BA in Biology from Rutgers University, Helena developed, implemented and supervised a drop-in center for sex workers with substance use disorders (SUD) for the Community At Risk Reduction (CARR) Program in Newark, New Jersey and helped develop a vocational rehabilitation component for a Department of Corrections (DOC) Residential Community Release Program (RCRP) for women. A discussion following the performance moderated by host/producer Jude Treder-Wolff will include Justice Rountree, expert on mass incarceration and reentry click here
