A Sisterhood for Justice
“FedFam4Life is not about raising a million dollars, it’s about freeing a million women from the prison industrial complex. That includes the 219,000 that are incarcerated and the 1.2 million under the de facto imprisonment of parole or probation. I am #mysisterskeeper.”
— Tray Johns
Co-Founder/Executive Director, FedFam4life
Dignity Power is our new organization dedicated to building political power amongst incarcerated, formerly incarcerated, and impacted women and girls + across the country
FedFam4Life is a non-profit Sisterhood co-founded by Tray Johns, Executive Director and Foxxy Mason, President, both formerly incarcerated Black, Gay Veteran Women. The couple, who married in 2017, conceived FedFam4Life to address the urgent need for Black Female leadership in the social justice movement. Tray Johns spent 8 years, 7 months and 19 days in federal prison for possession of less than $500 worth of drugs. While incarcerated, Johns became a skilled “Jailhouse Lawyer” and since being released, a prominent and fearless social justice activist and sought after public speaker at venues such as The Women’s Marches in Hawaii and Boston, Vanderbilt University, Simmons College, City University of New York, New York University and Boston Public Schools. Fedfam has recently moved to South Florida and is helping to lead the efforts for Dignity for incarcerated women across the state. Johns is The South Florida Criminal Justice Organizer for the New Florida Majority and is leading a series of Symposiums called ReformHER across the State of Florida that will bring the plight of incarcerated women to the forefront of the Crimnial Justice Reform converstaion. While Foxxy leads #healingus an initiative using healing circles to create safe and affirming spaces for women in need of sisterhood and healing. Together with Monica James from Triumphant Together these circles are used to bring and hold communities together with hopes of transformational healing.
