Kathleen Macferran worked for The Freedom Project for over 20 years, a nonprofit organization including men and women from diverse backgrounds and races sharing a common dream to strengthen our community by supporting the transformation of prisoners into peacemakers. The project represents both victims and perpetrators of crime; our collective experience with prison spans many decades and includes both work and service in the correctional system as well as incarceration. We are committed to the practice of nonviolence in our daily lives and in all interactions.

The Freedom Project offers trainings in concrete skills of nonviolence leading to reconciliation with ourselves, our loved ones and the community.  The work addresses the healing of relationships ruptured by violence and the forging of community founded on genuine safety through connection.

Kathleen travels internationally advocating for the transformation of prisoners into peacemakers.
