Our Network is excited and very grateful for those of you who donated to help us meet our $10,000 goal in only 4 days!!!!!!
BECAUSE MORE SUPPORT IS STILL NEEDED, WE ARE NOW DOING THE
STRETCH ⇨⇨⇨ Doubling Our Goal to $20,000!
These additional funds will enable us to expand MyTERN’s reach, by opening up our program to more people and beginning to mitigate some of the exclusiveness that higher education, unfortunately, often creates.
Please continue to help us raise this additional amount of money so that MyTERN can
⇨ 1. Provide programming for THREE ADDITIONAL STUDENTS and
⇨ 2. Cover costs of COVID-19 PROTECTION KITS (masks, gloves, wipes, hand sanitizer) at $50/person for participants and all instructors to maintain a healthy social distancing environment at the community center.
“The support system and guidance that I get from everyone, that’s what makes me successful. I never believed that I could maneuver my way through all of these obstacles on my path, and I can’t do it on my own... Having someone actually care about you, and want to help you, that changes everything.”

The Tufts University Prison Initiative’s mission is to facilitate creative and collaborative responses to the problems of mass incarceration, provide transformative educational experiences, and foster participants’ capacities to become active citizens of change in the world. Especially amidst the current national climate, our work continues in solidarity with the protests against systemic anti-Black racism to fight for justice through the cultivation of innovative educational programming that catalyzes lasting change. Your donation can sustain TUPIT’s mission and vision by expanding this critical and life-altering programming in the name of racial and economic justice. We look forward to updating you in the future about the progress of our participants and program. Thank you for making MyTERN possible!
