Action Committee for Women in Prison

The Action Committee for Women in Prison advocates for the humane and compassionate treatment of all incarcerated women everywhere, and works for the release of all women who are unjustly imprisoned, including individual women prisoners who pose no danger to society. They also strive to reduce the over reliance on incarceration by shifting the focus from punishment to rehabilitation and restorative justice. The group was started by Gloria Killian, who was exonerated in 2002 and released from prison after serving more than 16 years on a sentence of 32 years-to-life for a crime she did not commit.
