The Freedom Education Project Puget Sound (FEPPS) offers a rigorous college program inside the Washington Correction Center for Women leading to an Associate of Arts and Science degree.
We foster a culture of learning and critical engagement, and we work to increase women's economic empowerment and family stability through access to higher education.
The video above features Traci Matheson, who is now a college student at the University of Washington Tacoma and a board member of FEPPS, talking about the importance of a college education for women in prison.
At a TEDX event on March 14, 2015 Executive Director Tanya Erzen, four FEPPS students, and Professor Laurel Rayburn each spoke as well. To learn more about our program, explore the links below.
