WHAT WE DO

Direct Assistance

We provide free expert assistance to women & girls who are fighting wrongful convictions and unjust sentences on appeal or through the clemency process. We collaborate with counsel and offer research, strategy, and expert testimony on gender-specific issues such as the abuse-to-prison pipeline.

Research & Public Policy Advocacy

We produce research on gender and mass incarceration that centers and amplifies the voices and experiences of incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women and girls. Our goal is to improve public policy by documenting gender violence, inequity, and abuse within the criminal legal system and developing socially just and effective alternatives to incarceration.

Education & Training

Educational programming, training, and technical assistance for stakeholders including system impacted families, advocacy organizations, attorneys, policymakers, and the judiciary.
