Description

From the Press Release:
 
The women in Chittenden Regional Corrections Facility (CRCF) in South Burlington, the state’s only prison for women, are housed in deplorable conditions. Despite high incidences of substance abuse disorder, mental health issues, and past sexual abuse, these women are denied basic services, treatment, and supports. Now CRCF is under increasing public scrutiny after a guard was arrested for sexual assault of a former inmate and the Department of Corrections blocked journalists from gaining access to records on the conditions and treatment of the women in CRCF.
 
Hear directly from formerly incarcerated women about their experience with poor conditions, inhumane treatment, and challenges they faced at CRCF when trying to access critical services, such as medical care. The conversation also features a representative from VT Digger, as well as advocates working for alternatives to incarceration and better outcomes for women and trans people entangled in the criminal legal system.
 
The event is sponsored by the ACLU’s Smart Justice Campaign (www.acluvt.org) and Women’s March Vermont (womensmarchvermont.com).
