ACTION COMMITTEE FOR WOMEN IN PRISON

769 Northwestern Dr
Claremont, CA 91711

 
Our mission is to advocate for the humane and compassionate treatment of all incarcerated
 women everywhere.  We work for the release of all women who are unjustly imprisoned,
 and strive to reduce the over reliance on incarceration

 

 

 

 

 

Objectives
We work to bring fairness and equity into the criminal justice system and to shift the focus to treatment and restorative justice. We work to educate the public, develop new legislation, implement new programs, and develop resources for incarcerated women.

Our Purpose/Vision Statement
It is our vision that all persons who are impacted by the criminal justice system will be treated with dignity and respect, and that restorative justice will be the goal of all parties. Everyone in society will recognize that they have an important role in the process, and rehabilitation will be a primary focus of the criminal justice system. We envision a future where female offenders will be helped to maintain their families and develop strong relationships with their children rather than having their families destroyed as a consequence of contact with the criminal justice system...
