What We Leave Behind

In 1999, Beyondmedia began working with 42 recently released women at Grace House in Chicago. After participating in a media production workshop these women produced an award-winning video, What We Leave Behind, to educate the public about some of the causes and effects of women's incarceration. Over 200 groups nationwide now use this video as an organizing and educational tool and many former prisoners have developed as public speakers and advocates through facilitating audience discussions with screenings.Through Beyondmedia's Women and Prison program, incarcerated women and girls, former prisoners and their families use media arts to voice their stories, promoting public dialogue, healing and community organizing. Since 1997, Beyondmedia has collaborated extensively with women and girls in prison and after their incarceration to create interdisciplinary, multimedia educational forums on women and prison.
