Our next live Embraced:Fully Interview Series session will be held on Thursday, February 2, 2023 at 6:00 pm Pacific. We’ll be recording the interview in case you can’t make it.
Our special guest for the interview this month is Fritzi Horstman, Founder and Executive Director of the Compassion Prison Project (CPP)
Fritzi Horstman is the Founder and Executive Director of the Compassion Prison Project (CPP) an organization dedicated to bringing compassion, childhood trauma awareness and creative inspiration to all men and women living and working in prisons. With 95% of the incarcerated men and women eventually returning home, Fritzi believes it is imperative that we address the chronic mental health issues in prison with common sense, compassion and urgency. In 2020 Fritzi directed “Step Inside the Circle” at California State Prison – Los Angeles County with 235 incarcerated men. The video has reached nearly 4 million views worldwide and has attracted over 900 volunteers to CPP. Fritzi and the team at CPP are creating a 12-part video and workbook series entitled “Trauma Talks” to be distributed to prisons in the US and abroad. Fritzi produced HBO’s “The Defiant Ones” directed by Allen Hughes which has garnered several awards including a Grammy for Best Music Film. Her first feature, “Take A Number,” which she wrote, produced, and directed, debuted at the Slamdance festival and premiered on HBO. Fritzi studied at New York University’s summer film program and received a Bachelor of Arts in Film and English from Vassar College.
