About Us

JWC is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to educate, organize and mobilize a partnership of concerned citizens and organizations to advocate for just, humane and effective criminal justice policies, emphasizing alternatives to incarceration for women with children. We accomplish this by:

  • Developing citizen involvement through education and community organizing
  • Fostering public policies that will redirect the vast sums now spent on prison construction and incarceration toward more effective and less expensive alternatives, and
  • Recognizing individual strengths and providing opportunities for formerly incarcerated women to participate in the public debate about issues affecting thier lives
