We are writing to ask you to join with California Coalition for Women Prisoners (CCWP) in our statewide campaign to DROP LWOP and secure sentence commutations for all those serving Life Without the Possibility of Parole (LWOP). LWOP is an inhumane sentence which denies people the possibility to rehabilitate and change.
We are asking Governor Brown to use his executive powers to commute the almost 5,000 people serving LWOP sentences -- including nearly 200 women and transgender people in CA women’s prisons -- to parole-eligible sentences. Because CCWP has advocated for the civil and human rights of people in CA women’s prisons for 22 years, we focus on the impact of life without parole sentencing on the 200 people serving LWOP in women’s prisons.
Will you join us? Please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org
or (415) 255-7036 x 4 with any comments, questions, or concerns.
