Dish & Dish with Operation Restoration

Please join us for the June Dish & Dish with Operation Restoration.OR !

Operation Restoration (OR) was created to provide support to women and girls so that they have access to basic fundamentals needed to successfully re-enter society after incarceration. OR focuses on achieving successful reentry through the advancement of education and increasing access to higher education.

Organizers will lead a discussion about the work OR does and how society views women who have been incarcerated in prison based on the following article:

Why Dish & Dish? 
Having engaged, informed conversations about issues that affect womxn is an essential aspect of effective social justice work and we would love to create a space for our community to come together and further our dialogue!

Organizers from our monthly nonprofit collaborations will select readings that relate to the work they do (articles, essays, poems!) and lead an open discussion the topics covered! The reading is not required, just suggested! 

We will provide some snacks and libations and would love folks to bring tasty treats to share, potluck style!
