The Women's Prison and Re-Entry Project serves women incarcerated in Massachusetts’ prisons and jails, or those who have been involved with the criminal justice system. Currently, the Project operates at South Bay House of Correction in Suffolk County. In teams, volunteer attorneys meet with women and answer questions regarding family law, child custody, care and protection, housing, CORI, and criminal warrant clearing.
We are excited to announce the launch of our new Clemency Project! We are expanding the services we offer incarcerated women to include petitioning for clemency.
Lola Remy, WBF Director of Pro Bono Programs, worked closely with experienced attorneys and our advocacy partners, Families for Justice as Healing and the National Council for Incarcerated Women and Girls, to develop the inaugiural training for volunteer attorneys for the Clemency Project, and additional trainings continue.
