America's system of mass incarceration has greatly exacerbated the racial and gender inequities across our nation. Black and immigrant women are in the sights of the overlapping prison system, deportation system, and widespread sexual assault. This month's reading list focuses on these women who are incarcerated, and elevates their stories in their own voices.

Did you know that YWCA serves formerly incarcerated parents, who are working to bring stability to their lives and unification to their families at our Passage Point location? You can join us at our virtual 2020 Inspire Luncheon on September 10 to help support Passage Point and the other families that YWCA serves.
