Creating Change Through Education

Building pathways to college for women and trans-identified people in prison.

About Us

Our Mission

FEPPS provides a rigorous college program for incarcerated women, trans-identified and gender nonconforming people in Washington and creates pathways to higher education after students are released from prison. Our goals are to increase FEPPS students’ economic and personal empowerment, contribute to family stability and reduce recidivism through college education.

“These classes have made us question our societal placement and everything we believed to be true. We learned to believe that despite our circumstances we are not defined by the story of how others perceived us and even how we perceived ourselves.”

“I am so blessed and humbled to have been gifted with an opportunity to prove to myself that I am not a quitter. While I am sure we all believe education should be a right, the truth is that it is a privilege, one that I pray we don’t squander.”
