CCWP Takes Time to Reflect

In early February, CCWP’s Northern California and
Bay Area branches spent two incredible days in
Guerneville, California at a retreat center high
above the redwoods. Getting away from the hustle
and bustle of our daily work allowed us to
connect with each other, reflect on our work in
2003, develop plans to move forward in 2004, and
develop a more comprehensive political analysis
regarding how women’s prison issues fit into
larger political contexts. Highlights included a
session on the history of the prison justice
movement in California, a re-evaluation of our
mission, values and principles, a creative
writing and art exercise, and everyone seemed to
appreciate the hot tub as well!
