CEE, Inc. members have long declared eradicating poverty begins with social justice programs such as work and education opportunities for ex-offenders returning home. The UN reports about incarcerated women worldwide indicate that criminal justice reform focusing on female prisoners is necessary to individual reform. CEE, a member of the UN CJCP Alliance (New York), advocacy work has been to reform sentencing and expand in-prison programs that help with return to the family and neighborhood.
Thank you
