WLRP supports Pennsylvania Women Lifer's who want to share their positive experiences, personal growth, and to assist the women in seeking a second chance.

The Women Lifers Resume Project supports all of the 200 plus women in Pennsylvania who are serving a life without parole sentence (LWOP).  Resumes featured on this site are of a voluntary nature and should not be perceived as the only women we support for release.  Some women have elected not to participate at this time.

There are over 45,000 people in PA state prisons. While the statewide decarceration movement is building there is still a great need for people to advocate for those on the inside who suffer human rights violations, medical neglect and corrupt conditions of confinement. Join a solid crew of people who have been advocating for people in prison for years to learn the ins and outs of supporting people in prison. We also seek to strengthen our statewide network so we can better support each other's efforts and networks. This is a great entry point into much needed prison abolition work.

Facilitators:
Patricia Vickers - Human Rights Coalition (HRC)

Shandre Delaney - HRC - Fed Up!

LETTERS OF SUPPORT

Letters of Support  from family members, loved ones and friends are very much welcomed and will also be included on the WLRP website.

 

If you wish to participate, there are some areas to consider when writing your letter: 

  • A description of your current relationship with the incarcerated person.

 

  • The length of time you have been supporting this person.

 

  • What affect this person's incarceration has had on you (e.g. emotionally, spiritually, financially, etc.).

  • If this person is given the opportunity to be released, how will you be involved and what type of  support will you offer her?
