Community Forums of Justice-Involved Women: "Sharing Our Stories to Reclaim Our Lives". This program allows women who are justice-involved to discuss their lives before, during and post incarceration. Who Speaks for Me? hosts events around the Washington Metropolitan Area in partnership with community events to raise awareness about the collateral consequences of mass incarceration and its unique impact on women and girls. The forums are a model that can be replicated on a national level and Who Speaks for Me? woks locally and nationally with organizations, criminal justice advocates and those who work within the criminal justice system (e.g. judges, halfway houses, jails, prisons, probation departments etc) to bring the community together with women with lived experiences to create alternatives to incarceration.
