Women Influencing Systems & History

An Advocacy Training Program

for Women Impacted by Incarceration

Women Influencing Systems & History (WISH) is an eight-week advocacy training program for women who have felt the impacts of the criminal justice system.

Whether you’ve been incarcerated yourself, or watched your loved ones suffer the effects of an inhumane system, we’ll teach you how to become a skilled advocate for campaigns you care about.
