LWOP is a death-in-prison sentence that almost always excludes people for compassionate release. This year, CURB authored an Elder Parole memo intended as a prelude to legislation that would end LWOP and provide a path to release for all incarcerated people serving LWOP sentences. As co-coordinators of the #DropLWOP campaign led by California Coalition for Women Prisoners, CURB staff also helps organize the coalition’s Statewide Workgroup, Legislative Workgroup, and Media Workgroup.
