Review for Just Detention International, Inc., Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Fantastic support and real legislative results! My life has been transformed and revived by the work this agency has assisted me to accomplish. i was violated and raped by 'correction officer' in the DC jail in 1997. A group of us survivors and Just Detention International have accomplished so much to support incarcerated persons. They support inmates and persons released by letting us know we are not alone. We are connected by similar tragedies in our lives and by the ongoing summits they organize to promote the protection of people who happen to be behind bars. Just Detention International helps us all to remember that rape is Never part of the penalty for committing a crime.
