Love Beyond Bars is a South Carolina organization that aims to provide a support system for family members of incarcerated men and women. The organization creates an environment where these families can be loved and encouraged through unity. Love Beyond Bars began in 2015 and has since brought together many communities through their outreach. They are continuing this mission Saturday, July 29, as they host the Empowered to Conquer Family Expo at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center. There will be keynote speakers, children’s activities, and community bonding. The event is free, and will be held from 8am-6pm. Tickets can be found here.
