Home Poems from Sister Circles - Sponsored by California Arts Council & San Francisco Art Commission

Through grants received by the California Arts Council and San Francisco Arts Commission, YWFC hosted creative writing and audio storytelling workshops that engaged incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women, and queer and transgender women and gender nonconforming (TGNC) people in particular, in building voice and building power. Together we created media that challenges perceptions of system-involved women and TGNC and that supports organizing for change. We built siblinghood and community through this work as well.

Young Women’s Freedom Center Applauds Plans to Shut Down San Francisco’s Juvenile Hall by 2021

SAN FRANCISCO – The Young Women’s Freedom Center applauds and supports San Francisco Supervisors Hillary Ronen and Shamann Walton’s plans to introduce legislation to mandate the closure of San Francisco’s Juvenile Hall by December 2021, with Supervisor Matt Haney as a co-sponsor. For over 20 years, the YWFC has been working with young women, girls, and transgender or gender non-conforming youth in San Francisco who have been incarcerated in Juvenile Hall and leading community organizing efforts to demand alternatives to incarceration for youth. Most of the organization's staff were once themselves incarcerated in San Francisco’s youth jail and know firsthand how this system is failing our young people.
