Women Who Never Give Up Inc. started this petition to Governor Phil Murphy

The recent and horrendous abuse that occurred inside Edna Mahan Correctional Facilty this month is unacceptable. Especially after the Federal Department of Justice and the US Attorney's Office found that the only women's prison in New Jersey had a long history of rape and abuse by staff and officers stemming from decades ago - the 90's, according to a report released in April 2020. 

We are asking Governor Murphy to have the Executive Officials at the NJDOC removed while these recent incidents of abuse are being investigated. About 30 officers and staff members at the prison have been suspended while investigations are conducted however we need to look at the top officials too. These people must be held accountable. One woman was allegedly handcuffed and thrown to the floor while officers and other inmates stomped on her head and beat her. She is now in a wheelchair.  Another woman was beaten so badly her eye socket is broken. 

Please help us save these women. They are suffering daily and are terrified for their lives. This could be anyone's grandmother, mother, daughter, sister, auntie. The Eighth Ammendment of the Constitution guarantees people inside reasonable safety from harm and abuse of any kind whether it's sexual, physical, verbal or mental should not be a part of any woman's punishment. 

Sign and share this petition to support all women in solidarity.
