repost via @instarepost20 from @jamilatdavis BEEN RIDING BEFORE THE WAVE! - Rode through the mud together, fought together and when the commissary got low we shared ramen noodles together. Now this one right here, she’s a real one! And that’s a fact!! 💯💯💯.
Sometimes you have to go through dark places in life to meet some of the realest people. Grateful for my Sis @sunnymoneyqueens. Together we started the Pink Panther Clique @pinkpantherclique in 2014 to shed light on the epidemic of women in prison and the lengthy sentences many of us face as nonviolent offenders.
Before criminal justice reform efforts were popular, at a time when people behind bars, especially women, were scared and ashamed to show their faces, we did! . . . Never could imagine that God would take our imperfections and turn them around for His good. So happy to be a part of change!! . . . Follow our movement @pinkpantherclique . . . #TBT #pinkpanthercliquerocks #itsgoingdown
