Action Committee for Women in Prison
March 30, 2011
Gloria Killian is an outstanding woman, who has used her exoneration to help many others nationwide and abroad. She was the featured speaker at our first Freedom March for the Wrongfully Convicted, held in June 2009 at the Arizona State Capitol, as well as, helping to start the California Freedom March at the same time. Her modesty belies the tremendous impact her work is having for incarcerated women, the wrongfully convicted and the innocent behind bars. Her leadership is much needed in the broader scope of National Criminal Justice Reform. No woman has her first hand experience of living almost 20 behind bars and now in a position that could help policy and lawmakers understand the reality why the United States must reform it's laws and restore fair justice.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Gloria has brought me into the broader nationwide Innocence Network group. She's invited me to participate in the first ever Women and Innocence held in Michigan, Nov. 2010. She's invited me to appear on her blogtalk radio show several times. A unique show that is helpful to many with it's broad global reach. With the show she has brought greater public awareness that has rallied people to take action, write letters, make phone calls to Governors, Prison Directors, etc. -resulting in success!
Ways to make it better...

Give them more money and get more people involved with the cause to help incarcerated women.
