What does the Coalition do?

The Coalition for Women Prisoners educates the public, press, and policy-makers about the issues that currently and formerly incarcerated women face. We advocate to change criminal justice policies and improve the way the system treats women. We work together to create a supportive community and a place to network. The Coalition works through three main committees: the Incarcerated Mothers Committee, the Violence Against Women Committee and the Conditions and Re-Entry Committee.
