CWLC’s Distinguished Guest Speaker Series “Incarcerated Women and Girls” (2015)

On September 2, 2015, CWLC and the Feminist Majority Foundation hosted a panel discussion to examine California’s corrections system, including the unique needs of incarcerated women and youth. The discussion focused on programs and service providers that often play a vital role of giving incarcerated individuals hope for a better life. Speakers included Scott Budnick with the Anti-Recidivism Coalition (ARC), Heidi Rummel with USC’s Gould School of Law, Patricia Soung with Loyola Law School, and Terri McDonald with the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department.

In addition, the audience heard from Norma Cumpian, a former life term inmate who was a victim of domestic violence and is now an advocate and life coach.
