Oh My. :(

Kudos to Juvencia for having the courage to speak out.  This letter should have received a response and should have been printed.  Unbelievable.

 

Thankyou Nancy and Vikki for bringing it here.

Issues of women in prison remain over-looked..

 

Next week i will be at Central California Women’s Facility (CCWF) and then alter working with California Coalition for Women Prisoners to address over-crowding and other concerns, http://womenprisoners.org/

 

Vikki is right the problems outlined by Juvencia are everywhere..

Much gratitude to Juvencia Townsend for this letter.  It deserves an answer - and a humane, responsive one.  Thank you, also, Vikki Law, for bringing this letter to us. The voices of incarcerated women and their families must be heard.

 @Vikki Vikki, good to see you.  Juvencia Townsend's letter should be mandatory reading for everyone concerned with justice.

 @nancy a heitzeg Definitely keep us posted on what's going on in terms of overcrowding and mobilizations against the overcrowding at CCWF. (Do you know if CIW has also been affected or have all the people from VSPW been moved to CCWF?)
