ASU's Prison Education Awareness Club or PEAC (pronounced peace) is a nonpolitical student organization dedicated to raising awareness about and improving the state of prison education in our community. We acknowledge the challenges of working within the prison system but believe that education is desperately needed in this setting and aim to find innovative ways of reaching this population.
Our meeting schedule for this semester is as follows:
Wednesday, March 13 from 6:00-7:30
Wednesday, April 3 from 6:00-7:30
Wednesday, April 17 from 6:00-7:30
Our annual Prison Education Awareness Conference will be held on Friday, February 15, 2018 from 10 AM - 4 PM!
Keynote speakers include: Donna Harati & Gabriel Lopez from Homeboy Industries and Tyra Patterson, a social justice activist who served 23 years in prison for a crime she didn't commit.
The purpose of this organization shall be to educate students about the Prison Education System, to serve in that system by raising funds and interest, and developing programs to facilitate effective education in the prison system. We will serve the people who educate in the prisons and serve the inmates by providing feedback to writing, teaching courses, and promoting their existing programs.
