Voices of the Unheard Poster

Leading Campaign

Voices of The Unheard project collects and shares stories that center the transformative process of those incarcerated. Justice 4 All group will disseminate 15 stories through multi-media social posts, a printed poster series starting Friday August 5th, 2022. The culmination of these stories will be transformed into a listening session/art exhibit this fall.

Voices of the Unheard is part of the larger abolition and transformative justice project, the Future of Justice, both conceived of by Rob “Mjasiri” Dowell of Kensington, currently in the 12th year of a 25-50 year sentence he received when he was 20 years old. Rob has called in every Tuesday/Wednesday night for Justice 4 All meetings to help facilitate this project. Also using his calls to help transcribe others stories.
