Family and Community Engagement
Website and/or Calendar Links
FACE (Family and Community Engagement) works in Champaign and Chicago around issues related to re-entry and the family and community impacts of incarceration. FACE is committed sharing and celebrating the accomplishments of Education Justice Project (EJP) students with their family members and friends. Through FACE, we also provide family and friends with resources to help them further their own educational goals and encourage them to think about the power they have collectively as families and community members. Underlying our work is the hope that FACE initiatives will help lessen the stigma of having a loved one in prison, facilitate family and friends’ support one of another, strengthen EJP students’ relationships with their loved ones, and lead to systemic change.
