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.
