It is our mission to protect the rights of women in Florida state prisons, cooperatively working for justice to improve the conditions of confinement, to free those wrongly convicted and to work with attorneys that specialize in clemency and parole for those who deserve their freedom. We are a grassroots organization mobilizing to change the criminal justice system in the United States however we are not lawyers and we are not qualified to provide direct legal assistance.
Initially, we are focusing our efforts in helping Florida female inmates and their families because of our founder’s personal experience within FDOC and for the women she left behind. We will look to expand our efforts nationwide as possible. Ultimately, we want to END violence against women everywhere. Although women are the fastest growing segment of the inmate population, they are still outnumbered by about 10-1 by males and need our voice.
We are looking for people who support our cause by helping with requests from inmates and their families, and by taking an active role in responding to those requests, signing petitions, writing letters, making phone calls and helping us to change laws. Our organization is also reaching out to law students, schools and practicing attorneys to review and take on cases. We believe that when you hear the stories of these women you will be compelled to help them.
