By 2030, the Young Women’s Freedom Center will have built a groundswell of formerly incarcerated and systems-impacted girls, women and TGNC people to lead Freedom 2030 – a ten-year campaign toward the ultimate goal of decarcerating and decriminalizing girls, women and TGNC people in California.


YWFC has contributed to an annual 79%-85% reduction in recidivism among women and TGNC people who complete our program. Up to 90% of those who complete the program maintain employment and reach educational goals at 6-, 12-, and 18-month follow up.

What we do

Sister Warriors Freedom Coalition

The Sister Warrior Freedom Coalition brings together girls, women and TGNC people most impacted by incarceration and other public systems. Having created a Freedom Charter as our guiding radical vision, the Coalition is informing and providing leadership for the Freedom 2030 campaign to end incarceration and criminalization.
