Event Details

Join us for a letter and postcard writing gathering to urge our legislators to support criminal justice reform in Missouri. We will raise awareness about the number of people incarcerated in Missouri and the fact that Missouri has the fastest rising rate of female incarceration in the country. Over 50 percent of the growth in our prison system occurs when individuals are incarcerated pre-trial before they have been convicted of any crime and often before they have consulted an attorney. It is past time to look for alternatives to incarceration. Join us to hear from individuals who have experienced incarceration and write letters to women incarcerated in Missouri and advocate for change with your elected representatives.
