Women in Prison Project

Public Education

The Women in Prison Project (WIPP) speaks publicly and conducts educational workshops and training sessions for a wide range of audiences, including academic institutions, social service and women’s organizations, community groups, and agencies that serve currently and formerly incarcerated women.

Presentations focus on the impact of the criminal justice system on families and low-income communities of color and how participants can get involved in helping to change the laws and policies that affect women who come in contact with the system. Each session includes a discussion about the Coalition for Women Prisoners and ReConnect, WIPP’s leadership training program for formerly incarcerated women.

To request a speaker from WIPP or to schedule an educational workshop, please contact Anisah Sabur, Women in Prison Project Associate, at (212) 254-5700, extension 344 or asabur@correctionalassociation.org.
