Action Committee for Women in Prison
March 30, 2011
I am the executive director of 4justicenow, the Fl, NY,NJ chapters of the Action Committee for Women in Prison. This organization does more for helping women and children than any other organization in the field. Both Gloria and I were wrongly convicted and we work tirelessly to give voice to the women we left behind. Most of the women we advocate for are victims of horrendous abuse and many are in prison for crimes their abusers committed. In most cases they have been totally alienated from their children. This nonprofit is truly GREAT for the work of helping incarcerated women. The largest growing segment of prison population and most often forgotten.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Helping many women get their much deserved parole or clemency through our advocacy work.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Find a way to get them get the much needed funding so it can continue to help women in need.
Professional with expertise in this field & I work with Gloria to help the women we left behind.
