Using Art to Build Pride - NYTimes

The Museum of Contemporary Art in works with women in juvenile justice and drug rehabilitation programs in Miami. As I read the New York Times article I was reminded of Tacoma’s own, and rather impressive, Remann Hall Women’s Project.



The Remann Hall Women’s Project has been working for the past three and a half years to give incarcerated girls hope and to try to re-connect them to their potential so they are successful in creating a life for themselves once they leave.

Everything I’ve seen on this project impresses me. Support them if you can.


Do you want to help the folks at Exit133 pay our bills and keep up with of all things Tacoma? Do you want to see even more coverage? Exit133 has always been free to read and comment, and it will stay that way. However, over the years, readers have contributed to the bank account to help us keep up our coverage of goings-on around town. Contribute and this message disappears!

…having found the Kickstarter page, let me add: $5300? Is there really NO bank in Tacoma that will lend this thriving business five grand to expand? Interest rates are super low right now; how is this business not able to borrow this money cheaply?

Okay, I admit I don’t know anything about their finances, or business finances really.  But…$5300?

That said, I hope they succeed, and I do plan on visiting them sometime soon to check out the soup.

Donations to for-profit businesses?  That’s a new one.

Here is an example of how it worked in Brooklyn, NY for a very good business.  Remember these types of businesses are a benefit to the community and you do get something in return for your payment once the project is funded.  These folks have hung in there for a long time, why not help them out.  It is not a donation, you get soup in return for your payment, like paying in advance.
