Orange is the New Black: opens in fact, the foundation is dedicated to Poussey
The character was fictitious but the foundation in his name will not. On the occasion of the last season of Orange is the new Black, arrived on July 26 on Netflix, the producers have made to know who is coming in the Foundation Poussey Washington, an initiative to raise funds for a select nonprofit groups to reforms in criminal justice, to protect the rights of immigrants, support for women in prison, and to eliminate mass incarceration.
The foundation is named after the character played by Samira Wiley, much loved by the fans, and he died during the revolt of the fifth season for the hand of a guard – a terrible and dramatic accident, to bear witness to and denounce the medical malpractice of the prison service the american way. An episode inspired by what really happened in the reality in 2014 in Staten Island to Eric Garner.
In the seventh season of the series, Taystee (Danielle Brooks) creates a fictitious named Poussey Washington by providing mini loans to women coming out of jail, hence the idea to transpose the initiative into reality.
The creator Jenji Kohan said: “Through the Foundation Poussey Washington, our characters can have an impact on reality, even after that the serial will be finished.”
The initiative will include 8 non-profit organizations: A New Way of Life Reentry Project, Anti-Recidivism Coalition, College & Community Fellowship, Freedom For Immigrants, and Immigrant Defenders Law Center, The National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Woman and Girls, unPrison Project, Women's Prison Association and will be supported by GoFundMe.org.
