The mission of the National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls (National Council) is to end incarceration of women and girls.
We do this by providing a membership platform of technical support,
complex coalition building, and comprehensive resources that assist local
initiatives to organize toward our shared goal of shifting from a criminal legal system to one based on human justice.
Through the work of the National Council, incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women and girls are connecting their criminal justice transformation work and sharing their expertise as directly affected women and girls. In the aggregate, as we grow in our membership, sisterhood, and common purpose, we contribute to meaningful change in public opinion and policy making that moves us toward our goal of ending incarceration of women and girls.
