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

We are a group working to end Death by Incarceration (also known as life without parole sentencing), 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.


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.
