Events Description

A Discussion with Women’s Prison Advocate and Former Inmate, Heather Mason

Women’s Prisons: What are They *Really* Like?

The very first event of its kind! This is a unique enlightening learning experience! We urge attendees to be prepared with questions as there will be a question and answer portion during the discussion.

Heather Mason is a 31 year old mother of two children and a first time federal offender. She was sentenced to 3 years at Grand Valley Institution in Kitchener, Ontario and is almost at her warrant expiry date. Having struggled through Oxycontin and Fentanyl addiction for many years herself, she has firsthand knowledge and experience navigating a prison system that is severely lacking in resources to help and support incarcerated women suffering from addiction. Having successfully overcome her addiction, Heather is now an advocate for incarcerated women.
