Our Mission

 

ccwp_logo_reduced_rectangleCCWP is a grassroots social justice organization, with members inside and outside prison, that challenges the institutional violence imposed on women, transgender people, and communities of color by the prison industrial complex (PIC). We see the struggle for racial and gender justice as central to dismantling the PIC and we prioritize the leadership of the people, families, and communities most impacted in building this movement.

CCWP es una organización que lucha para el cambio de las condiciones de violencia impuestas en las mujeres, las personas transexuales y las comunidades de color por las prisiones y el sistema criminal de justicia. Estamos construyendo un movimiento con mujeres en prisión, familiares de las prisioneras y la comunidad amplia a través de la organización, el desarrollo del liderazgo y la educación política.

THURSDAY JUNE 1, 7-8:30 PM

CALIFORNIA INSTITUTION FOR WOMEN – 16756 CHINO-CORONA RD, CHINO

Please join us for a Vigil at CIW on the first anniversary of the death of Shaylene “Light Blue” Graves. Join CCWP & the families of Shaylene Graves, Erika Rocha, Alicja Thompson and currently incarcerated people at CIW in demanding an end to state-sanctioned death, abuse & neglect.

Please join us at 6:00 pm at American Heroes Park (6608 Hellman Ave, Eastvale, CA 92880), just a couple miles from CIW. We’ll gather together at the park and head over to the prison as a group before 7 pm.

At 7 pm we will march in front of CIW to honor those still in prison with drums and chanting, and then circle up for a speak-out by family members & formerly incarcerated people who have lost loved ones at CIW. We are planning a peaceful, legal demonstration.
