About this Event

Join us for Beauty After the Bars 2nd Annual Bars to Elevation Gala. Founded by Tiawana Brown who has dedicated her life to saving our youth from entering the jail and prison systems. After spending 4 years in prison and having her daughter in prison and experiencing recidivism, she joined the fight for advocacy.

Likewise, Tiawana has committed her voice and work for the sisters and brothers that are still behind the bars of incarceration and for those that have been previously involved with Justice.

GALA THEME: #SchoolsNotPrisons: Save our youth-It takes a Village!

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS:

  • Jimmie C. Gardner - a motivational speaker who draws on the values and life lessons he acquired through his childhood, professional baseball career, and a 27 year wrongful conviction to help others make the most of the challenges and opportunities granted to each of us.
