JustUS Voices is seeking the stories of formerly incarcerated women, as well as the children of formerly/currently incarcerated women, to help channel a new energy into the movement to end mass incarceration. We are soliciting stories from Californians who have been impacted by experiences with one or more of the following: child/family reunification, excessive bail, or significant barriers to re-entry (including difficulty obtaining housing, employment, student loans, professional licensing, insurance, etc.).

The Jails Project's Unlock the Vote (UTV) along with other community partners are embarking on a campaign to reduce barriers to registration and voting for justice-involved and justice-impacted folks in Los Angeles County as well as Orange County.
