CCWP’s visiting program in California’s women’s prisons is at the core of all our work. We partner with women and trans people inside to publish The Fire Inside Newsletter to give voice to feelings, ideas and art. Together, we build campaigns like DROP LWOP to win freedom. We support the Spitfire Speakers Bureau as a way for formerly incarcerated people to tell their stories and educate the public. In our FireStorm project, we study the impact of the U.S.-led prison industrial complex on women and trans people around the world in order to build international solidarity with global movements.
