Prison Creative Arts Project (PCAP) Presentation

Yesterday my husband, Hans, along with our close friend and TIME Committee member, Maria, presented about Efren's case at the Prison Creative Arts Project (PCAP) in Ann Arbor. PCAP is based at the University of Michigan.

According to their web site:
"Founded in 1990, PCAP is committed to original work in the arts in Michigan correctional facilities, juvenile facilities, urban high schools, and communities across the state. Our process is guided by respect and a spirit of collaboration in which vulnerability, risk and improvisation lead to discovery. We make possible the spaces in which the voices and visions of the incarcerated can be expressed."
You can learn more about PCAP by visiting their web site at: http://www.lsa.umich.edu/english/pcap/.

We met some wonderful young people that evening and shared Efren's story with them. We passed out the new Free Efren Paredes, Jr. posters for the first time at a presentation, along with some wonderfully prepared folders that Maria created for each person which contained various information related to our campaign.

Efren was able to call in to the presentation and answer questions over my speaker phone. It was a very positive experience and we are glad to have been able to meet everyone who attended. We look forward to seeing them again in the future.

Thanks to everyone who attended the presentation and thanks to PCAP for inviting us! Below is a photo we took with the group of PCAP members that attended.
