The IF Project Screening & Discussion

Host Organization: Washington Women's Foundation


Women are the fastest growing segment of the incarcerated population, increasing at nearly double the rate of men since 1985. Most of these women are mothers.

The film The IF Project explores the reasons behind these staggering numbers by following SPD Detective Bogucki through WCCW. Ten years ago Det. Kim Bogucki walked through the gates at Purdy, and asked the mothers in a writing workshop the critical question: “If there was something someone could have said or done that would have changed the path that led you here, what would it have been?”

About 700,000 inmates are released prisons annually, and approximately two-thirds will reoffend. How we reintegrate former prisoners back into society will has a great impact on the future of our communities. The answers to the IF question, as brought to life in the documentary, show that we are returning people to our communities broken and unprepared.

After the movie, there will be a Q&A with Detective Kim Bogucki, co-founder of The IF Project, an innovative partnership between law enforcement, currently and previously incarcerated adults, and community leaders to build commonality, reduce misperceptions and serve as a deterrent to recidivism and future incarceration.

We will provide the popcorn! WA Women's Foundation members and guests welcome!
