Support Our Work

Your donation is critical to our efforts to end the mass incarceration of women and girls. We do this in two ways:


1. Direct Assistance: We provide direct assistance to women who are fighting wrongful convictions and unjust sentences either on appeal or through the clemency process. As an all-volunteer organization, we cannot provide legal representation. Instead, we collaborate with counsel and offer research, strategy, and expert testimony in support of appellate petitions and applications to the Conviction Integrity Unit (CIU) of the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office. We also provide research, strategy, and advocacy on behalf of incarcerated survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence who are seeking commutation of life and near-life sentences. 


2. Public Policy Advocacy: We amplify the voices and stories of justice-impacted women and girls to expose and challenge gender violence, inequity, and abuse within the criminal legal system. We provide community groups, policy makers, court officials, and the general public with the latest social science research and data to inform policy decisions and ensure socially just outcomes. 


Your donations support our efforts in a variety of ways. We use them to purchase trial transcripts and to offset legal expenses including fees for private investigators and expert witnesses. Donations pay for communication with our incarcerated clients (who are charged elevated rates for phone calls and email). Donations support travel to prison and jail facilities where we host training seminars to assist incarcerated women effectively navigate the legal system. Donations make it possible for us to provide training and mentorship to undergraduate, graduate, and law students in gender-specific, research-informed advocacy. We are also hoping to generate enough donations to support a fully interactive and robust website to keep you updated on our cases, policy developments, conditions on the inside, and current social science research.
