Behind Enemy Lines

Prison advocate Bonny Kerness describes abusive treatment of prisoners and calls for change: “We need to rekindle a national movement against torture and prisons among people who dare to believe that over 2 million men, women and children need not be imprisoned to make the rest of us feel safe.”

Ella Baker Center for Human Rights (EBC)

Ella Baker Center for Human Rights (EBC) is an organization focused on building the power of black, brown, and poor communities. The unequal, racially biased system of mass incarceration within the US inhbits this power-building, and so the EBC is focused on advocacy and direct action. The Center grounds its work in Truth and Reinvestment processes.

National Council For Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls (NCIFIWG)

From the website: "The two primary purposes of the Council are:

1) To ensure that no policies, laws, practices, organizing and services are made about women and girls who are or were incarcerated without including our voices, experiences and ideas for creating more effective outcomes. Our mantra is “Nothing about us, without us!” Through support, awareness and advocacy, the Council is committed to collectively building new and just policy grounded in social justice, human rights and dignity.
