Women History Month Honors Tina Reynolds

Women have been making history since the infamous apple. We have made impacts, contributions, and inventions since the beginning of time. I had the pleasure of attending a strategy session with the Formerly Incarcerated & Convicted People’s Movement. I was in Alabama from Feb.28-March 2, 2011. I met some awesome people. Many of whom were FIP’s.  I was so inspired, encouraged, and uplifted by a sister I met that I had to dedicate this post to her.

Tina Reynolds is beautiful inside & out! As she told the history of her past I began to cry. She spoke of her time in prison, harshness of the system and how it deals with women and children. When she began to tell us about women being shackeled while giving birth I was appauled, outraged, hurt & the like. If it had not been for the taping of the program I’m sure I would have fell apart.

Tina Reynolds is a woman who has made history because she used her own hurt, mistreatment, and mistakes to assit the next sister. She’s the Co- Founder of the Organization WORTH!

I believe we will hear and see more from this powerhouse as she continue’s to tear down the walls of injustice for incarcerated women.

Contact your local politicians & ask if they know that this is happening. Call for yourself & ask the correctional institutions in your area do they engage in this practice. Many are denying they practice this Grossly wicked and inhumane treatment.

I salute Tina Reynolds a sister who is truly Beautiful, Encouraged Elevated & Empowered!
