Pregnancy and Prison: A Discussion with Incarcerated Women

July 24 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Nurturing Wāhine Fund is hosting a screening of a poignant film and a discussion with its real-life subject, Kemba Smith, who received a 24 1/2 year prison sentence due to her boyfriend’s crimes. Held at the Women’s Community Correctional Center, the only women’s prison in Hawaiʻi, the event aims to highlight issues of justice reform. When Kemba turned herself in, she was seven months pregnant. By sharing Kemba’s story, the event seeks to spark awareness and to reduce recidivism. The film premiered on BET+ in February, and was also honored at the Sundance Film Festival.
