As public support for criminal justice reform continues to build, it’s more important than ever that we get the facts straight and understand the big picture. This report offers some much needed clarity by piecing together this country’s disparate systems of confinement.
We rank U.S. states on their rates of women's incarceration, comparing states to each other and to countries around the world. The report also shows the growth of women's incarceration in the U.S. over the last century.
Our nation’s prisons are full – full of potential. At The Prison Scholar Fund, we believe that incarcerated individuals deserve a second chance at a better life. That’s why we help incarcerated individuals get access to the education they need to transform their lives.
Incarcerated people and their families often have to pay $1/minute or more for a phone call. Why? Because prisons and jails profit by granting monopoly telephone contracts to the company that will charge families the most.
Until ARRWIP’s “Pregnancy in Prison Statistics” (PIPS) study, there have been no systematic data on how many pregnant people are behind bars in the U.S. or what happens to those pregnancies. This historical absence of data shows us just how neglected incarcerated pregnant people are— women who don’t count don’t get counted, and women who don’t get counted don’t count.

This video reveals how racism played the biggest part in cannabis becoming illegal. All because of one man's hate for a beautiful singer. In my opinion, it remains illegal because the government has always known it's value. Big Pharma could go bankrupt if everyone knew THC kills cancer cells. There's no conspiracy here- it's written plain as day. Everyone knows weed is harmless, and that alcohol is 200% more dangerous. Besides the dangers of drunk driving, the withdrawals could kill you. So watch this video, and open your eyes!!
