Let’s Get Free: The Women and Trans Prisoner Defense Committee

We are a group working to end perpetual punishment, build a pathway out of the prisons back to our communities through commutation reform, support successful possibilities for people formerly and currently incarcerated, and shift to a culture of transformative justice.

5 people stand underneath a giant billboard on a busy interection in Harrisburg PA. The billboard says "5476 people are sentenced to Life Without Parole"  and there are three photographs of Tameka Flowers, Charmaine Pfender and Sarita Miller. The background is pink and yellow. On the bottom right it says " End Death by Incarceration" letsgetfree.info

Life sentences are death sentences in Pennsylvania. PA has one of the largest populations of people sentenced to die in prison in the US — 5,467.

The following videos are voices from women featured on our billboard – Tameka Flowers, Charmaine Pfender and Sarita Miller. The film Wide Open features Paulette Carrington, Starr Granger and Tameka Bell who came home from a life sentence after being sentenced as teenagers.

Films, art shows and plays are some ways we lift up stories from people in prison.
