    Success Pods

    Founded in 2014 by Black, feminist men at Soledad Prison, Success Stories Program (SSP) is an alternative to punishment. Through formerly incarcerated, peer led anti-patriarchal workshops and circles that invite individual accountability and integrity, we will co-create safer communities without prisons. SSP's "Success Pods" will be a network of healing and radical transformation for over 120 Angelenos, who have caused harm, and their loved ones.

    Transformation in community not cages

    We envision a thriving Los Angeles community where members feel safe to work and play and are making this a reality by bringing our groundbreaking transformative justice program to LAUSD schools. Our program addresses harmful and reactive behaviors that lead to suspension, expulsion and other isolating and stigmatizing punishments by helping students transform the way they think, behave and relate to each other so that they are more connected and supported.
