This event information comes from the California Coalition for Women’s Prisoners:
Join CCWP for the Drop LWOP Town Hall
In the past six months six women have had their Life Without Parole (LWOP) sentences commuted by the Governor. At the end of January 2018 two of these women were found suitable for parole and will soon be free. This victory illustrates how the Drop LWOP Campaign and A Living Chance project are creating a foundation for the commutation of all people sentenced to LWOP and the elimination of LWOP from the penal code altogether.
At the Drop LWOP Town Hall you will
- learn updates about the Drop LWOP campaign
- hear audio from A Living Chance Storytelling to End Life Without Parole
- engage with a panel of formerly incarcerated women, including survivors of the life without parole sentence
- learn how you can get involved
Featuring food from Mamacitas Cafe, a raffle and items for sale made by people living inside women’s prisons.
