Task Force on Women's Incarceration
Passed through a House Resolution, Louisiana now has a Task Force on Women's Incarceration for the next year. The goal of this task force is to provide policy recommendations to the Louisiana legislature following year long study of women's experieces while incarcerated and in the reentry process. The Task Force has 6 women on it, 3 formerly incarcerated women, 2 judges, and one DA. We hope that this make up of the task force will allow the most comprehensive and impactful recommendations to be made.
