The California Coalition for Women Prisoners (CCWP) is a grassroots advocacy organization for women in prison and those who have been released and are facing a difficult transition. One focus of CCWP is their Drop LWOP (Life Without Parole) campaign. Drop LWOP is focused on changing California code to commute the sentences of people currently serving LWOP, ending LWOP sentencing, and halting all forms of in-prison discrimination against people serving LWOP. Their strategy is to work simultaneously to improve incarcerated people’s lives right now while working to change the system fundamentally. Their motto is “Build Hope. Keep up the Fight!”
