A growing coalition of criminal justice reform activists are fighting for change and they’re doing it through music, theatre, and audience participation. The group is called a Thousand Kites. It’s a nationwide project that enables the families of prisoners to educate the public about problems within the criminal justice system, one community at a time.
Thousand Kites is a project of the Appalachian based media-arts center Appalshop. Visit www.thousandkites.org to find out how you can use Thousand Kites in your community.
