Review for Action Committee For Women In Prison, Pasadena, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Gloria Killian, founder of ACWIP, is a courageous woman who is not afraid to face the issues of overincarceration, the plight of many of the women in prison, the wrongfully convicted, and the general abuses on all fronts in the prison system. She is educated, passionate and comes from a position of first hand experience after being wrongfully convicted for over seventeen years for a crime that she did not commit. I have had the opportunity to hear her speak several times and am always impressed with her dedication to this worthy cause. She has the solution to many of the problems facing the present U S prison system not just in California but around the country and around the world. I have also heard her internet radio show and she is an articulate and knowledgeable commentator.

Review for Action Committee For Women In Prison, Pasadena, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Gloria is a beautiful and smart woman who has taken a tragedy and turned it into a triumphant cause for those who no longer have a voice or vote in this climate of over incarceration. On this day, as former military, I salute Gloria and ACWIP for their courage. I have been at several fund raisers and always in awe of the stories that I hear from her and others that have survived this system.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

beyond wonderful.
