#16 – Decarceration: The Heartbreaking Reality of Women in Prisons and How You Can Be A Part of the Change

In This Episode

Women are disproportionately disadvantaged in our prison and judicial system. Incarcerated women are more likely to face sexual assault, they are often denied resources like adequate healthcare, and they are often unable to get treatment for mental illness. Today’s conversation is a glimpse into an issue that doesn’t often make headlines.

Rev. Sharon White-Harrigan and Guisela Marroquín, our guests today, are experts on this issue. The New York Women’s Foundation has funded the Women’s Community Justice Association for years and the two-work side by side to protect women and create change. Hopefully YOU are changed by what you hear and want to help restore our communities and support the changes we need to see in our justice system to create fair, just, and equitable alternatives to incarceration.
