Women Who Never Giver Up in collaboration with the National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls invites you to join us for the first in a series of town hall style meetings for the sharing of information, ideas and solutions. At this meeting we will be discussing the “Dignity for Incarcerated Primary Caretaker Parents Act” (Assembly Bill #3979) with the sponsors of the bill, Assemblywoman Yvonne Lopez and Assemblywoman Valeria Huttle.
