For a year now, in a time of unprecedented caging, in the middle of a pandemic, Texas Jail Project made it their mission to empathetically listen to people in Texas county jails. Without an agenda or expectations, they made a simple choice to create safe spaces for people to share what was happening to them. In partnership with Civil Rights Corps and Zealous, Shedding Light is a growing, digital archive of intimate firsthand accounts of people in jail during the pandemic.
