Women TranscendA Transmedia Project & Narrative Initiative
Women Transcend is a multi-platform media and storytelling initiative that rejects and challenges harmful narratives around crime, and incarceration, to powerfully expose a striking truth - those who experience the worst of our country can become our guiding light, showing us all how to not give up on each other and on the society we dream of becoming.
Produced by Colorlines in collaboration with formerly incarcerated women, Women Transcend will be:
- A feature documentary that will be screened at festivals and community watch parties across the country;
- A series of companion pieces - articles, visual art, spoken word, and music that will create multiple access points into a global conversation and meaning-making around crime and justice;
- A grassroots distribution and engagement campaign anchored by a network of partner organizations advancing aligned policy work, research and analysis, and organizing campaigns.
