Women on the Rise & 100 Women Rising fight against injustice in the criminal ‘justice’ system.
DON'T GIVE IN~FIGHT BACK!!!
Women on the Rise connects you to a group of powerful women leaders who are fighting for social justice by ending mass incarceration in Georgia. We are a community of women who are impacted by the criminal ‘justice’ system and are making policy change. We are transforming ourselves and our communities through somatic healing. No longer will we accept the status quo. We will fight, unite and demand that all women who are currently or formerly incarcerated are able to walk in our dignity and integrity and have access to opportunities to live successful lives. As a member of Women on the Rise, you will help us make collective decisions about our campaigns and about the ways to change policies that affect us and our communities.
As Women on the Rise, we assert that public safety is created by strong, interdependent communities, and empowered women and families, not by prisons and police. We honor our lived experience, reclaim our inherent power, cultivate a passion for justice, and engage in bold, collective action to transform our communities and the institutions that affect our families and our lives.
We are working to reduce the number of women behind bars and to stop the criminalization of our communities. We build power through grassroots organizing, change policies through campaigns and strengthen our movement through coalition building. We take action to center women’s leadership in our work and community and work in partnership with men and members of the LGBTQ community who are also targeted by the criminal ‘justice’ system'
