Compassion Prison Project
Bringing compassion and childhood trauma awareness to our incarcerated. Transforming our trauma and shame to hope & creativity.
Compassion Prison Project began as the brainchild of award-winning producer Fritzi Horstman, whose own childhood trauma helped shape its conception. Over the course of several months in 2019-2020, Fritzi and a dedicated team of facilitators and volunteers partnered with the men who were incarcerated at a Kern Valley State Prison (KVSP), a maximum-security prison in Southern California. Together, they created powerful tools for addressing and healing from childhood trauma.
