We're so excited to work with you to Pass the Prison and Jail Construction Moratorium Bill and Stop the New Women's Prison! These are critical steps in the larger movement to end the incarceration of women and girls led by Families for Justice as Healing and The National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls. Together, we will make it happen. We have in-person events planned in key districts, virtual events, and campaign work that we can plug you into. Thank you so much and looking forward to seeing you soon!
