KALW teaches people in California prisons how to be media makers. Through our training program, people in San Quentin and Solano State Prisons make the award-winning series Uncuffed, which is shaping the conversation about people in prisons.


“It's given me self worth,” says producer Bryan Mazza. “There's a lot of marketable skills I'm learning in prison.”


Producer Nathan McKinney calls Uncuffed “a golden conduit” that “allows us to release emotions that have been pent up for years.”


Help us take Uncuffed to the next level. We’re raising funds to reach more listeners and to expand our training program to more prisons. With your support, more incarcerated people can create powerful radio stories that reach far beyond the prison walls.
