On this week's edition of Prison Pipeline, host Doug McVay is joined by Julia Yoshimoto, Attorney and Project Director at the Oregon Justice Resource Center, and Alice Lundell, OJRC Director of Communication, to talk about the Women's Justice Project and HerStory Oregon.
HerStory Oregon is an initiative of the Oregon Justice Resource Center's Women's Justice Project. HerStory Oregon shares the stories of women who are currently or were formerly incarcerated in Oregon. Women impacted by the criminal justice system have needs, hopes, fears, and goals that come together in their stories. With their consent, the OJRC's Women's Justice Project shares their reality with the world outside their cells, deepening and broadening the conversation about who we are incarcerating and why.
