Yesterday was Mother's Day- a day to remember and honor those women and others in our lives that have sacrificed and loved us unconditionally.

NJAC strives to make Mother's Day special for the hundreds of women we serve in our programs each day and we are grateful for the donations of many in the community that helped us deliver a happier day.

The victimization of women can be stopped.

But we have to Talk About It and we have to Act.

Speak out AGAINST ideas and behaviors that support violence against women, especially to people you know and who may value your opinion.

Give support if you think someone you know is being victimized or is suffering from trauma. Sometimes just one person believing and supporting can make all the difference.

The NJ 24-hour Domestic Violence Hotline is 1-800-572-SAFE (7233).

The NJ 24-hour Sexual Violence Hotline at 1-800-601-7200.

NJAC hopes everyone enjoyed a peaceful and loving Mother's Day.

NJAC celebrates Winifred Canright (1898-1995) one of NJAC's founding Members. She was active in the civil rights movement and prison work for the entirety of her adult life. Winifred and her husband, Dr. Cyril M. Canright (1894-1965) were missionaries in China in the 1920s and 1930s and later made their home in New Jersey. The Canrights owned a beach home in Florida. They made their beach house available to Dr. Martin Luther King when he visited with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) at the urging of Dr. Robert B. Hayling and the St. Augustine movement in May 1964. The mass campaign led to the passage of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964. Dr. King had not yet spent a night in the house when the local newspaper ran directions to it on the front page. It was vandalized by segregationists. They shot rounds of bullets into the house on May 28, 1964, and then attempted to burn it on May 30. On June 8, they smashed the windows and furniture, painted racist graffiti inside, and firebombed it. All of these events were widely reported around the country, and increased public pressure to do away with racial segregation. Dr. Canright passed away the next year, but Mrs. Canright continued up into her 90s to work for prison reform and other causes in New Jersey. The Winifred Canright House in Asbury Park is named in her honor. This house has been featured as a civil rights landmark, in newspaper stories, books, television programs, and in Clennon King's 2004 documentary "Slave Market Diaries”. A photograph taken of of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at the damaged cottage has become one of the iconic images of the civil rights movement.

How is it possible?
700%...the rate increase for incarcerating women in past thirty years...60% have a child under age 18
AND
This rate is comparable for girls (CA 12-17)...targets of increased sexual victimization and harsher punishment on ’inside’. @thesentencingproject

During these hard times of covid-19, The National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls would like to acknowledge the struggles women in prisons across the country are going through. A team of formerly incarcerated or directly affected women we understand first-hand the obstacles many of you are facing. We are writing to let you know that we are fighting every day to end incarceration of women and girls and bring our sisters home. #ClemencyWorks All of Us or None Aclu-NJ

How do you endure life behind bars?
The prison-industrial complex is a punitive universe walled off from the larger world. What takes place behind those walls? Deprivation and cruelty, but also the production of art. Check out, “Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration,” a stirring 44-artist show at the reopened MoMA PS1.

An NJAC program available in Ocean and Monmouth counties, The Batterers Intervention Program (BIP) is a highly structured 26-week program that prioritizes offender accountability and confronts the cognitive-behavioral distortions that support an abusive person’s belief that he* has the right to abuse his partner.

Access: Most participants have lived in a household with children that are involved with NJ DCF and are referred through this source.

Services may be available through referrals from other sources on a self-pay basis when there is room available.

*While the pronoun “he” is used, and the majority of batterers are men. Women and others can and do also batter their partners, occurring in heterosexual and LGBTQ communities.
