Join me as I talk to Shirley Thomas about her work with women in the Jersey State Prison system.

Shirley is the founder and executive director of the Daughters of Zion, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to provide a comprehensive holistic program for female ex-offenders; to instill dignity, establish a wholesome value system, and build self-esteem as a means to strengthen the reunification of family and community.

She holds a Bachelor of Liberal Arts degree, with a minor in Gender Studies, from Rider University and a Master of Social Work degree from Howard University.  She  also has an MDIV from  the  Princeton Theological Seminary .

Ms. Thomas sits on the Board of the Mercer County Ex-Offender Reentry Partnership, where she serves on the State Legislative and Focus Group Sub-Committees. She also holds memberships with the National Association of Black Social Workers and the National Association of Commissions for Women.
