The Insight Prison Project
Thursday, October 29th, 2009 – 7:30 - 9:30PM
We are delighted to invite you to spend an evening with Jacques Verduin (IPP Founder), Rusty Trunzo and Pat Mims, two former life sentenced men that spend 30 and 20 years incarcerated and Arlinda Love, a mother, victim and activist that works with them in the Richmond community. The evening offers stories of strength and inspiration from people that live lives of service dedicated to sharing the real answers they have found in dealing with "living life on life's terms". Be ready to be amazed, deeply moved, and bent over in laughter by these characters and their testimony from the trenches. You might find some answers to 'issues you are doing time on in your own life...'
Jacques Verduin is the founder and executive director of the Insight Prison Project (IPP). For over a decade this project has been teaching thousands of prisoners a highly practical process of transformation that includes emotional literacy, somatic awareness, non-violence and restorative justice. IPP runs 20 classes in San Quentin, works in 6 other state prisons and regularly travels abroad to train folks in other countries on issues ranging from gang violence to prisoner rehabilitation. He has built a small cadre of 'Change Agents' a team of former life sentenced men trained by IPP during their incarceration that now work with imprisoned and gang youth in Oakland and Richmond. The agency offers training to existing organizations in offering a life skills curriculum that increases their success rate with challenged youth. >>
