Wisconsin Inmate Education Association
In impoverished communities, some of the most influential gatekeepers are the individuals or groups who organize and perpetuate crime. If you want to dramatically change struggling communities, you start with those gatekeepers. WIEA’s initiative is built on a proven system to transform gatekeepers whose influence is rooted in criminal activity. Change starts in prisons with inmates and spreads to families and communities around the state. WIEA gives inmates the opportunity to receive theological training while incarcerated through a partnership with Trinity International University.
