Justice Now!

Oakland, CA
Justice Now is the first teaching law clinic in the country solely focused on the needs of women prisoners. Interns and staff provide legal services in areas of need identified by women prisoners, including:

• compassionate release;
• healthcare access;
• defense of parental rights;
• sentencing mitigation;
• placement in community-based programs.

Building a World Without Prisons:

We bridge the gap between service provision and political organizing through our Building a World Without Prisons campaign. This campaign highlights ideas and strategies of women in prison to challenge the current reliance on policing and prisons. We use popular education, training, theater, music, art, and community organizing to create a vision of a world without prisons and develop the tools to make it a reality now.
