Deborah Jiang-Stein, founder of Minneapolis-based unPrison Project, has been recognized as one of 10 L'Oréal Paris Women of Worth Honorees for 2017. The honorees are chosen from thousands of nominees for their “unwavering commitment, drive and desire to better the lives of those around them.”
As an honoree, Jiang-Stein receives $10,000 to support her charitable cause, as well as opportunities for networking, marketing support and a platform to tell her story. In addition, the public can vote for her to become this year's National Honoree, who will receive an additional $25,000 to support her cause (for a total of $35,000).
The Unprison Project works to build literacy, mentoring and life skills for women and girls in prisons and for their children to help cultivate critical thinking tools to plan, set goals and prepare for successful life after prison.
