Help build PBP – join our board!

The Prison Birth Project (PBP) is forming a board of directors and an Anti-Racism Advisory Committee. Please apply to join our leadership!

We are seeking board members for at least a 2 year commitment to help transition us into being a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and to be responsible for the organization’s administration. We are also seeking members to form an Anti-Racism Advisory Committee (ARAC). The job of the ARAC will be to hold PBP to a mission of racial justice and support us in strategically challenging and dismantling racism within the organization and throughout our work. Below is a link to the typeable PDF of our application. (Tip: download & save it to your computer to edit)
