Our mission is to end violence against women and stop imprisonment. We believe that prisons and policing are not making our communities safe and whole but that, in fact, the current system severely damages the people it imprisons and the communities most affected by it. We promote alternatives to policing and prisons and challenge the prison industrial complex in all its forms.
We fulfill our mission by:
Providing legal services and supporting the organizing efforts of people in prison that promote health and justice;
Working with people in prison, their families and community members on political education and mobilization campaigns;
Building coalitions to create safety and individual and community accountability without relying on the punishment system;
Training the next generation of activists and lawyers committed to working for social justice.
