The Real Women Real Voices symposium is a groundbreaking discussion highlighting issues and concerns that affect incarcerated women. The panels feature currently and formerly incarcerated women discussing the effects of incarceration and the carceral state on themselves, their children, and their communities.

The National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls is a grassroots policy initiative focused on the gendered impacts of the carceral state. It has convened organizing meetings around the country and engaged women and girls in prisons, jails, and immigrant detention based on the motto “nothing about us without us.”
