Jennie Belle, Program Director for Immigration and Farmworkers, has been fielding questions about the issue. To help those who want to learn more, she has developed…

IPMW CONCERT EVENT
CONVICTION: SONGS OF FAITH FROM WOMEN IN PRISON
AT THE RALEIGH LITTLE THEATRE
In the summer of 2016, one of IPMW's chaplains offered
"Singing a New Song" for the women in the prison, led by local pastors/musicians. Eight women competed this 10-week course and, as a group, wrote and composed over 25 songs that tell the stories of how and why women come to be incarcerated as well as the depth of their spiritual response to the reality of imprisonment. This concert will be a unique opportunity to hear original songs and testimony, as well as to see the impact of IPMW's ministry on the Raleigh unit.
All proceeds raised in this benefit event will be used to support new areas of transition and re-entry efforts with IPMW to support women once they are released from prison.
Reserve your seats today at: convictionconert.
