Dignity Denied: The Price of Imprisoning Older Women in California

Legal Services for Prisoners with Children is proud to announce the release of its report on older incarcerated women. The result of extensive interviews with older incarcerated women throughout California, the report calls for two categories of recommendations: (1) reduce the number of older prisoners (for example, release all nonviolent prisoners over 55 on geriatric parole); and (2) improve the lives of older prisoners (for example, establish an “over 55” status that will provide age-specific consideration and assistance regarding housing, programming and activities of daily life.

For a copy of the report or its executive summary, please look at the website: or write to LSPC at 1540 Market St., #490, San Francisco, CA 94102.
