Calling all women and supporters to
(1) raise awareness of the increase in the rate of incarceration of women in the United States and the impact on our children and communities,
(2) Demand an end to voter disenfranchisement for people with felony convictions and
(3) Insure President Obama commutes the sentences of women and men in the federal system who have applied for commutation.
The number of women in prison, a third of whom are incarcerated for drug offenses, is increasing at nearly double the rate for men. This must change.
