Writer Linda Norton and Friends of Peralta Hacienda Historical Park have launched Home & Away: Oakland, California’s Prisons and the Geography of the Heart, a project documenting the effects of mass incarceration on the community in Oakland. Starting in March and running through October 2015, project partners hope to create healing among families and friends of inmates scattered at facilities throughout the state by conducting interviews, creating an exhibit, and offering art and writing workshops. If you would like to tell your story or participate in the workshops, call or text Linda Norton at (510) 229-2562, email [email protected], or call Beverly Hodge Odabi at the Peralta Hacienda, (510) 532-9142, ext.7.
