The Beat Within/JJIE


Over the last month we have strengthened our partnership with the JJIE (Juvenile Justice Information Exchange) based at Kennesaw State University near Atlanta, Ga..   They are the only publication/website covering juvenile justice and related issues nationally on a consistent, daily basis.

Today they are running our colleague and friend, Emile DeWeaver’s piece, A Secret. This piece came out of The Beat Within’s monthly San Quentin State Prison writing workshop.

Last week they ran, Markayla’s powerful poem, My Generation.  Markayla is an outstanding contributor in our weekly writing workshops inside Central Juvenile Hall in Los Angeles.

If you want to read other entries from The Beat that JJIE has posted,
here’s the link…

We encourage you to give a read and share with your community.

Lastly, The Beat Within is currently working on designing a newsletter to send out our latest announcements around our workshops, publication and volunteering.  Be on the look out in the coming days.

Thanks for your continued support in these important voices.
