Converging Worlds (CW) is a student organization which was created to raise awareness about racial injustice in our court and carceral systems. Through penpal relationships with currently incarcerated, queer people, a transformative justice mentorship program at Reid Middle School in Pittsfield, MA, the publication of SUMMIT – a magazine dedicated to the sharing of concrete ideas for community programming in Berkshire County, and a social activist speaker series, CW seeks to end the school-to-prison pipeline and think critically about alternatives to our current carceral state.
