What began as an idea, then a partnership, quickly grew into a community effort.
Farm to Prison (FTP) is a project focused on reproductive justice and food justice at the intersection of childbearing and incarceration.
Our MISSION is to provide resources and nutritious food from local farms to pregnant and postpartum prisoners. We aim to help create and sustain community across bars.
Our VALUES include reproductive justice, bodily autonomy, and the right to food.
We believe in horizontal, non-hierarchal organization. We are a collective dedicated to acting against all forms of oppression. We are committed to creating a safe space for pregnant prisoners to eat, share, and connect.
Jasmine K. (she) is a mother, writer, bodyworker, and birthworker with a BA in Maternal Health in a Sociocultural Context. She’s been involved in reproductive justice work for over a decade. Her skills and passions include food sovereignty, plant medicine, and reproductive justice. Jasmine has written for various publications including Midwifery Today, SQUAT Birth Journal, and The Birth Project.
Lilly R. (she/they) is passionate about the power of community in supporting those who are marginalized, rather than relying on large institutions. They work as a Volunteer Coordinator for The Delores Project, a shelter and service provider for unaccompanied women and trans folks experiencing homelessness in the Denver area. Lilly holds a degree in Gender, Women, and Sexualities Studies from Metropolitan State University of Denver.
