JEP has been working towards accumulating books to donate to incarcerated individuals. Access to literature and other forms of education and arts allows prisoners to rehabilitate and move towards re-integrating into society. Thank you to JEP member Isa for donating all the books below!

"Literature has always been a huge part of my life. As someone who enjoys reading, I consider a good book to be an escape from reality, which is one of the main reasons I wanted to donate to the incarcerated. Living in prison is everything short of enjoyable, but perhaps a good book might make the mundanity of being in prison a bit more bearable. Plus, keeping the incarcerated intellectually stimulated is extremely beneficial to them once they’ve finished serving their time!"
