Thank you to everyone who donated to support this project!
On behalf of RAWS and RAWS Jrs., we cannot thank you enough. This was the first of (hopefully) many projects funded in such a short time!
With the funds raised and more student becoming involved, we have decided to push the project to begin around February 2021. Your funds will support the costs of paying for students orientation, mailing and postage costs, and extra funds needed for gifts and related products for our incarcerated friends.
Stay tuned for more details as we are so excited to have the support of people like you and students from different schools in the metro-Detroit and surrounding areas the oppurtunity to learn from those directly affected from bioethical prison systems.

Thank you to our supporters!

As you can see, our project has been switched to our new student-led cohort RAWS Jrs. in which students actively work, learn and participate in the cross-jurisdiction of health and other related matter that negatively impacts health inequity.
We hope you find our work and our project worthy enough of your continued support. We have also added branded products on our website in exchange for your genorous donation. All products include free shipping!
Our cohort of students will be meeting monthly and planning to discuss with incarcerated individuals as it pertains to health advocacy. We will create story books as a conclusion to this program.
The march on washington was a very busy time in Washington DC the past few days. While our mission is focused on health awareness and prevention, for health purposes -- we did not directly participate in the march, rather, gave out free PPE carekits which included kleenex, sanitizer, gloves, and face masks. We wanted the majority of people in attendance to stay safe before, during, and after the march. We ran out of carekits within the first thirty minutes of us giving them out. We will definitely prepare better for our next event!
Jacob Blake's father also personally thanked us for being so young and involved! Congratulations to our students on learning about how racism is a public health crisis.
