Vanderbilt Prison Project is a student organization at Vanderbilt University committed to educating, equipping, and inspiring our student body to work with the Nashville community for progress in the criminal justice system, and to serve, advocate for, and uplift those impacted by it.

Don and Shawnda's stories first came to our attention through one of our community partners, Unheard Voices Outreach. Over the course of three months, we communicated and collaborated with Don and Shawnda to create this website and launch an initiative to advocate for their release.
