Calling all advocates, service providers, and women impacted by the criminal justice system!
Join us for the 2nd Annual Women in Reentry Day!
Women in Reentry Day is being organized by a powerful team of formerly incarcerated women who are advocacy fellows at the People's Paper Co-op. This spring the women are partnering with the Philadelphia Community Bail Fund for their 2nd annual Mama's Day Bail Out campaign (raising money to bail mothers out before mothers day) and are organizing Women in Reentry Day to celebrate to celebrate the Bail Fund's work while brining together a coalition of partners to imagine and demand how Philadelphia can better support women impacted by the criminal justice system.
Please join us! Support their amazing work!
