HOW FORMERLY INCARCERATED WOMEN ADVOCATE FOR #SECONDCHANCE PELL GRANTS! (522 hits)



For Immediate Release From Ed Trust!

Our October 1st event featuring formerly incarcerated women whose lives have been changed through Pell Grants was a compelling and moving experience. The Washington Post (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/reliable-source/wp/2018/10/01/cause-celeb-allison-williams-advocates-for-a-lifting-of-the-pell-grant-ban-for-incarcerated-students/?utm_term=.96c234d585b4) covered the event, where actress Allison Williams (GIRLS, GET OUT) said, “Every day we spend not fixing it is a day we decided we’re okay with it. These women are special because they came through this horrible system, and they succeeded despite it, thanks to their access to Pell Grants.” NowThis encapsulates our efforts to lift the ban on Pell Grants for justice-impacted individuals.
