Guest: Sue Ellen Allen is an author, speaker, and prison expert who found her passion and purpose in prison. As the co-founder and Executive Director for GINA’s Team, she brings a leadership program into women’s prisons and juvenile facilities to encourage the women to find their own purpose and upon their release, to become tax payers rather than tax burdens. Her memoir about prison life, The Slumber Party from Hell, is a leader in sparking the conversation about the cost American faces as the world’s ‘Incarceration Nation’ both in tax dollars and in human lives.

Sue Ellen Allen’s letter was chosen for President Obama to read. She was invited to the White House to sit in Michelle Obama’s box for the 2016 State of the Union address.
“My letter wasn’t just about me, it was representative of all the voiceless, faceless women and men behind bars. The men President Obama visited with in prison were also representative of those same women and men forgotten inside our prisons.” -Sue Ellen Allen
