The Project

Riley will provide legal information and education to incarcerated mothers in Washington State to help reduce the chances of permanent family separation. Because greater systemic change is needed, Riley’s Fellowship project will also pursue legislation and impact litigation to create alternatives to incarceration as well as improve child welfare laws to better address the needs of these vulnerable families.

For true equality, we must challenge structural power inequalities and respond to the needs and leadership of communities most affected by various forms of oppression.
