Action Committee for Women in Prison
June 1, 2010
The Action Committee for Women in Prison is a great organization. I am a Board Member and founder/director of the pen pal program of ACWIP, which matches up women outside of prison with women serving prison terms in California. Although most of our outside pen pals live in the United States, we have women from all over the world who have joined our group. I spend at least five hours a week involved in this activity. I find this activity very enjoyable because I meet so many interesting and compassionate women (via letters and email), Here is something that any woman (and particularly older women) can do from the comfort and safety of her own home, in less than a half hour of time, costing only a $.44 stamp!
