Welcome New Volunteer Coordinator Patricia Chase!

Patricia ChaseWe are thrilled to introduce Patricia Chase to our readers. Patricia was born and raised in Peru and lived in Mexico for 11 years. She has a tremendous amount of volunteer coordination experience behind her. She comes to us because of a lifetime of dedication to struggling against injustice, poverty and discrimination, both in Peru and in the United States. In particular, she has worked with women on the border between the U.S. and Mexico who work under the most brutal sweatshop conditions. Patricia believes that the struggle for the rights of women prisoners is part of the same struggle that she has participated in throughout her life. She hopes to build different networks in support of women prisoners. She wants to make sure that the issue of women behind bars is as visible as possible. She also intends to coordinate the work of CCWP with the work of others who are working for prisoners’ rights.
Patricia will be working half time for CCWP. She can be reached at the office.
