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.
