Book «Diseñar para la Libertad» published

The purpose of this book is to sensitize the reader to a socially invisible reality: the prison, the penitentiary facilities, the inmates. Reading is a journey that invites you to broaden the vision of the «wall» that divides those inside and outside in order to break down prejudice. Authors: Mariana Kaplún and Mariluz Soto.
