What is Voices from Within?

The Voices From Within Project is a new and growing multimedia education initiative that uniquely addresses the epidemic of crime and incarceration directly through the voices of people living with the consequences of their choices, and the victims left in their wake.

The Voices From Within Project was born inside the walls of Sing Sing Correctional Facility, New York’s infamous maximum security prison, where a group of incarcerated individuals decided to share their stories or help others share their stories to implore young adults to think about the consequences of their choices.

Alone in a room with only a camera to record them, incarcerated individuals – none of whom had spoken publicly before about their crimes -- are given the opportunity to openly discuss how and why using a gun landed them in prison, and what life has been like for them since.
