1 Girl Revolution

Oct 23, 2021

This week’s episode of the 1 Girl Revolution Podcast features Detective Kim Bogucki, co-founder of The If Project. Kim was on the 1 Girl Revolution Podcast in 2019 and it was such an inspiring, informative, and powerful episode, that we wanted to revisit her original episode for our series on incarceration + women. We also did an update interview with Kim in this episode to hear how things have been going over the past two years, what The If Project has been up to, and what they’re working on now.

The If Project is 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. This initiative centered around the question “if” — “If something had been different, how would your life be different?” “If there was something that someone could’ve said or done to change your path, what would it have been?”

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • Kim’s life story; 
  • The story of how she decided to get into law enforcement;
  • How her time working in a prison and the relationships she built there led to The If Project;
  • The story of how The If Project came to be and more about their incredible work;
  • What The If Project has been up to over the past two years and how their work is evolving and growing;
  • And so much more.
