Lifting as we Climb!
The WIRE (Women Involved in Reentry Efforts) is a network of formerly incarcerated women who have successfully reintegrated back into the community after release. The Women of the WIRE have joined together to provide peer support and peer advocacy to women in prison and women returning from incarceration.
“And so, lifting as we climb, onward and upward we go, struggling and striving, and hoping that the buds and blossoms of our desires will burst into glorious fruition ere long. With courage, born of success achieved in the past, with a keen sense of the responsibility which we shall continue to assume, we look forward to a future large with promise and hope. Seeking no favors because of our color, nor patronage because of our needs, we knock at the bar of justice, asking an equal chance.”
