July 31, 2023

“Rapper JT of the City Girls is helping formerly incarcerated women access therapy, housing assistance, addiction treatment, and more with the launch of a new non-profit initiative.

“On July 14, JT launched the No Bars Reform initiative, which was created as a way for her to ‘use her voice and platform to help other incarcerated women rehabilitate into society,’ according to the official website.

“The 30-year-old Miami rapper was sentenced to two years in federal prison in 2018 on credit card fraud charges. She was released in late 2019 and has been vocal about sharing some of the challenges she has faced after incarceration.

“A statement on the website reads, ‘After spending almost two years in a Florida prison before being released in 2020, JT has vowed to use her voice and platform to help other incarcerated women rehabilitate into society by assisting with resources such as therapy, job placement, social services, and housing.’

“The No Bars Reform website includes user-friendly links to essential resources such as employment assistance, therapy, substance abuse help, and housing support.”
