Barred Business is a membership based organization founded by multi generational, multi gender, and multi national formerly incarcerated black women to empower marginalized formerly incarcerated people who are disproportionately affected by the US legal system of mass incarceration, including LGBTQI and BIPOC community members. We take a "whole" approach to social justice reform. We believe that investing into an impacted person's “whole “life, starting with housing, we can create a stability model for receiving our loved ones into our communities.
Upcoming Projects to Fund
