#cut50  A national bipartisan initiative to smartly and safely reduce our incarcerated population.

For 85% or more of incarcerated women, we shout "Me, Too." For all of the thousands of women – and men – behind bars, sexually assaulted by officers or staff, we shout "Me, Too." For all of the children who must go on without their mothers, victims of our society's willingness and insistence on turning away from accountability, we shout "Me, too." Our criminal justice system has held the dignity of its inhabitants' hostage for too long. Sexual abuse is one of its many symptoms. Are you with us in demanding #DignityForIncarceratedWomen? --> DignityAct.org

In case you haven't seen it, or in case you wanna watch it a few more times: We're calling on YOU with @aliciakeys, @weareheremovement, & National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls to rise & demand that @senatorchuckgrassley hold a hearing for the #DignityAct on behalf of the women inside & communities affected by the mass incarceration in this nation. Visit the link in our bio to mobilize! πŸ’ƒπŸΎπŸ•ΊπŸΎ

The fight to demand for dignity for incarcerated women goes beyond the screens of your phone. We will continue to stand with fearless leaders, advocates, AND those silenced to nurture empathy & bring healing into our communities everyday. A special thank you to the National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls for being by our side on this. Who else is with us? β€’β€’β€’ #DignityAct πŸ™‹πŸΎπŸ™‹πŸ½πŸ™‹πŸΌπŸ™‹πŸ»πŸ™‹πŸΏ

As we wind down, we recognize that thousands of mothers behind bars will be going to sleep hundreds of miles away from their children tonight. How long will it be until they have the opportunity to speak to or see each other? #DignityAct is the hope that we'll be able to bring impacted families closer together soon. πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦

Amazed, but NOT surprised by all of the support behind the movement today. Thank you @AliciaKeys + @weareheremovement for standing with us to demand dignity for incarcerated women & ALL families. Join the movement to put pressure on @senatorchuckgrassley to hold a hearing for #DignityAct. Link in our bio ✊🏽

Senator @ChuckGrassley, did you know that the US practice of shackling women during childbirth violates several international treaties related to human rights and torture? Did you know that it threatens the life of the mother and baby? Is our criminal justice system humane? Can we do something about this? We're asking you to hold a hearing for the #DignityAct! -- Understand why through the video in our bio πŸ™πŸ½

Senators @corybooker & @elizabethwarrenma introduced the #DignityAct this summer, aimed at restoring the dignity that’s been stripped away from incarcerated women -- especially mothers & pregnant women. TODAY, we released a video in partnership with @aliciakeys, @weareheremovement & those impacted, to raise awareness on the issue -- we need your support. Please, stand up for our incarcerated mothers, sisters, daughters -- ALL women. Stand up for their children & families. Stand up for our future as a nation. Join us in demanding a more compassionate & humane justice system: DignityAct.org. β€’β€’β€’β€’β€’ πŸ™πŸ½
