A newsletter at Washington Corrections Center for Women covers several topics including community, health, and historical figures. The February 2012 issue of the Village Voice included an article on Leroy Eldridge Cleaver: “By his example we learn that though we have spent our years struggling with the law or addiction, it does not mean that we aren’t someone of importance. WE ARE SOMEBODY!!!” This article is inspiring and offers the women in WCCW the inspiration they need to know that they can be somebody and move on with their lives after prison.
The author of this piece was able to find everything she needed for the article in the WCCW library. The library has always offered material in demand by patrons, and today the focus seems to be on growth and potential.
