October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Start early and take action to free incarcerated survivors in California by submitting public comment to Governor Gavin Newsom!
The criminal punishment system does not end domestic and sexual violence, it facilitates domestic and sexual violence. Over 90% of people in women’s prisons, and many in men’s prisons, are survivors of sexual and/or domestic violence. Some survivors are criminalized for actions they take to survive violence. Some are targeted with violence while incarcerated where they are particularly vulnerable to ongoing abuse. Prisons are gender violence.
Free all survivors, end domestic violence, and dismantle the criminal punishment system.
Use the toolkit and join us for these days of action:
