Keeping women out of the justice system

In 2017, in response to the rising rates of women’s incarceration, we identified Keeping Women Out of the Justice System (KWOJS) as a priority-funding theme of the VLSB+C’s Grants program.

We have continued to provide additional funding each year to expand this critical work, and have allocated almost $4 million to five innovative projects with the following aims:

  • reduce women’s encounters with the justice system
  • reduce the factors driving growth in the women’s prison population
  • reduce women’s incarceration and recidivism rates
  • provide models for reform.

Below is our latest report on the important work of the KWOJS projects as well as some more.
