America’s obsession with private prisons and all of their human rights violations began as a transition from slavery. Today US prisons, both public and private, incarcerate more people than any other country.
Andrea JamesAndrea James, a formerly incarcerated woman, founder of both Families for Justice as Healing and the National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls, will be speaking. Prison most often causes further social and economic harm and does not result in an increase in public safety. The prison experience increases trauma in women and, if they are mothers, to the children they are separated from.

The National Council is guided by the principles of transformative justice, alternative community economic development, participatory budgeting and developing liberation projects.Find out more »
