2015 Women in Prison Conference
February 7, 2015 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
This annual conference is an all-day conference, which presents issues related to women in prison in Oregon. Despite the enormous growth rate of women in prison, women are often forgotten in discussions about the impact of and reforms needed in the criminal justice system. This conference serves as a venue to highlight women in the criminal justice system, their needs, and the consequences of their over incarceration. This year our conference will focus on the importance of maintaining family connections and the need for alternative sentencing programs for women. The conference will highlight Washington State’s parenting sentencing alternative programs: Community Parenting Alternative and Family and Offender Sentencing Alternative.
