All levels of knowledge/experience around these issues are welcome.

Tina Reynolds is the co-founder and executive director of Women on the Rise Telling HerStory (WORTH), a nonprofit organization in New York City that works with currently and formerly incarcerated women to confront barriers they and their families face during and after prison. Through organizing, leadership development, mentoring and mutual support, WORTH transforms the lives of women affected by incarceration and works to change public perceptions and policy. Reynolds and WORTH have been instrumental in passing state legislation that protects the rights of incarcerated women, and recently launched a national campaign called Birthing Behind Bars to address broad issues of reproductive justice in prisons. Reynolds speaks widely on the role of storytelling in promoting social change, the use of direct action to impact public policy, prisons as tools of reproductive justice, and the abolition of prisons. She is the co-author of Interrupted Life: Experiences of Incarcerated Women in the U.S., and holds a master of social work from Hunter College.
