Our History

More than two decades ago, His Holiness the Dalai Lama charged a group of 50 western students to do prison outreach in the US. He saw the tremendous suffering and inequality in our prison system. Anna Cox was in the room that day, and Compassion Works for All is the manifestation of the Dalai Lama's vision.
