Interfaith Prison Ministry for Women's 5-night virtual 40th anniversary event, A Cause for Celebration, is over, but the memories and videos will live on.

Sincere appreciation to everyone who took part in this joyous occasion as a member of the live audience, a donor for the work, a bidder on the silent auction, and/or by passing on the word. The early tally shows that we raised approximately $35,000 to benefit women who have experienced a period of incarceration, exceeding our goal! We are grateful. Because of you, IPMW’s re-vitalizing chaplaincy services, transition education and reentry support will be able to grow to meet the increasing need.

This event was the result of many hands and hearts coming together to celebrate a very special cause. To everyone past and present who has supported this work in any way, thank you. We are inspired by your faith.

Go to our website (http://www.ipmforwomen.org/) to catch up on the celebration.
• Peruse the beautiful 40th Anniversary online program book.

Join us tonight from 7-7:40PM for our grand finale: Episode 5 - A Cause for Celebration
Welcome: Debra Morgan and Ken Smith, WRAL Anchors/Reporters
The work of prison chaplaincy, transition and reentry is a collaborative effort. It is only through the support of the community that we have reached this momentous 40th anniversary occasion. Many hands and hearts have contributed to four decades of work with women. This final evening of our celebration will feature the inaugural Hope Awards, honoring three area leaders whose tireless work has made the way smoother for justice-involved women. We also will honor the contributions of First Presbyterian Church of Raleigh on the life of this organization. In addition to special guest artists, join MCs Debra Morgan and Ken Smith from WRAL, IPMW Board President Marci White and Executive Director Jennifer C. Jackson as they present the Angel of Hope, Beacon of Hope and Champion of Hope awards to these inspirational women.

Join us tonight from 7-7:40PM for Episode 4 - Heal. Grow. Thrive.
Welcome: David Crabtree, WRAL
Help us to write the next chapter of IPMW’s history. This evening will include friends whose post-prison journeys have just begun, Executive Director Jennifer C. Jackson and partners as they share their vision for a new women’s reentry project that was launched in July of 2020, thanks to a generous investment by the Anonymous Trust. In development since 2018 and informed by partners, stakeholders and other members of the community, this new initiative builds upon 40 years of chaplaincy programs and services and 20 years of transition education to offer a safe and stable base from which women can prepare for and navigate new and healthier lives after incarceration.

Welcome: Frank Stasio, WUNC The State of Things Host
Join us in the healing power of song. In 2016, a group of songwriters came together while in prison. They have made a name for themselves sharing the powerful and moving music they wrote about love and loss, grief and resiliency while incarcerated, both around the Triangle and through two Conviction Concerts sponsored by IPMW in 2017 and 2018. This evening will feature Susannah Long, Loyane Propst, Luverta Gilchrist, Regina Bridges and Rebecca Johnson as they lead us through the creative process, showing how they respond to the fear and struggle of life in the pandemic with poetry, music, and hope for the future.

As most of you know I work for a non profit organization. This week we are celebrating our 40th anniversary virtually. Please join us for “A Taste of Prison.” Special guests will be showing us how to make a prison lasagna and state cake and sharing some of their experiences with incarceration. Hope to see you there!

Join us tonight from 7-7:40PM for Episode 2 - A Taste of Prison
Welcome: Valonda Calloway, Arts Reporter and TV Host
Featuring MC Valonda Calloway and led by IPMW’s Chaplain Sarah Jobe, IPMW Board member Jean Suber, Erin Kinlock, Jennifer Green-Lee, Cassandra Payne, and Jessica Trevena, this night will feature songs, poetry, and story-telling as we all learn to make “prison lasagna” and the “state cakes” that women make for each other’s birthdays while doing time. As with all birthdays in prison, this will be an evening in which grief and joy sit side by side, learning from women how to honor both the losses that are multiplied by prisons and the creative resilience that abounds in those who are locked up.
