As a country we need to really think about what our priorities are. We should be investing in schools and education, not jails and incarceration.

Post-Prison Education Program

Post-Prison Education Program

Billions of taxpayers' dollars wasted on ineffective failed programs which purport to reduce recidivism — yet recidivism rates continue to climb (as "re-admission" rates skyrocket). Now, Washington state legislators have the chance to bolster programs like the Post-Prison Education Program — programs that work. House Bill 2025, introduced by a bipartisan group of legislators, would require that the Washington State Department of Corrections prioritize evidence-based and research-based practices when allocating anti-recidivism resources, and that existing programs that have not made a difference no longer be funded. We hope you will pull out all the stops, and do whatever you can to support House Bill 2025:

Yet another young woman of color died at CIW 2 weeks ago today. She was 6 weeks away from returning home to her loving son, family & friends. In the wake of Shaylene's death, the prison continues to mistreat her grieving family & friends & to evade responsibility for failing to save lives.

Please share & help us demand an investigation into the preventable deaths at CIW bit.ly/ShayleneGraves

this is so awesome!

In a pilot project, the UC San Francisco schools of nursing and medicine have provided comprehensive doula training to 16 women who were all low-income and had previously been incarcerated. Essentially, doulas are trained nonclinical birthing companions – a role that has existed for centuries in nearly every cultural tradition. The idea is to give these women strong incentives to stay out of jail by giving them the skills and self-esteem necessary to earn a living and, if they choose, to further their education and pursue other careers, including in health care.
