Tiawana Brown

Tiawana “Tia” Brown, 46, was 6 months pregnant when she was incarcerated. But unlike many women in her position, Tia benefited from a program that allowed her to keep her baby with her for the first three months. As a single mother of two children, Tia struggled with reentry, but she found her calling with Beauty After the Bars, a non-profit organization that she runs to supports incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women.
