This Woman’s Programs of Kindness Are Transforming Prisoners’ Lives
Recently, the KIND foundation recognized Jo Dee Davis for her extraordinarily kind acts. Davis is the Executive Director of Healing Broken Circles, which serves those who are incarcerated or are at risk for being incarcerated. While many people write off the men in her prison as “not worth it,” Davis believes in them. Her programs include writing, poetry, yoga, theater, group discussions, and just “being silly,” and the prisoners call her program a “space of restoration.” As one man put it, “I feel like I can go home and be somebody.” Jo Dee David and Healing Broken Circles are beautiful examples of true kindness in action.
