Review for Action Committee for Women in Prison, Pasadena, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have known Gloria Killian for about 8 years now, and she continues to impress me with her work on behalf of women in prison. Gloria's passion for incarcerated women is contagious, and after hearing her story of wrongful conviction and the work she now does to raise consciousness about women's imprisonment I began to work with her. I continue to work with her and students to raise money for women in prison... Gloria goes to legislative hearings, raises money to bring women in prison Christmas presents and resources during the year, and keeps in contact with them on a regular basis. This is a terrific nonprofit.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

having Gloria Killian speak to my students on campus, which helped to raise awareness about women's incarceration. Gloria also worked to catapult "Prisoner Awareness Month" during the month of October, with a specific emphasis on women.
