Freedom 2030:

Our decade-long campaign led by formerly incarcerated and systems-involved cis and trans women, young women, and girls, trans men, young men, and boys, and gender-expansive youth and adults toward the ultimate goal of ending incarceration and criminalization of our families and communities, and replacing both with transformative justice processes and community-based alternatives.

Freedom 2030 is a ten-year political organizing, culture change, and legislative campaign that will: 

  • Identify specific legislation packages that can effectively break cycles of poverty, violence, exploitation, criminalization, and incarceration;
  • Engage in a people’s budgeting process towards reallocation of funds from incarceration and criminalization to true community safety and transformative justice;
  • Engage public officials, artists, academics, and community leaders as champions;
  • Use a comprehensive communications strategy; and 
  • Build a statewide movement toward decriminalization, decarceration, and transformative justice. 

Freedom 2030 Long-Term Goals:

These priorities were established at the March 2019 Sister Warrior Freedom Coalition Policy Summit in Oakland, California where over 150 formerly incarcerated cis and trans women, young women, and girls, trans men, young men, and boys, and gender-expansive youth and adults came together to identify campaigns toward fulfilling our Freedom Charter and our Freedom 2030 legislative agenda and support campaigns.

  1. Investment in system-impacted cis and trans women, young women, and girls, trans men, young men, and boys, and gender-expansive youth and adults and our families, loved ones, and communities, including preventing separation and supporting reunification.
  2. Ending the profiting off of incarceration and the criminal legal system.
  3. Ending mandatory minimums and stopping enhancements.
  4. Creating oversight and security methods that keep people safe and protect their human rights while incarcerated and in systems.
  5. Replace existing systems and legislation with those that uphold and are accountable to the Freedom Charter and to those most-impacted.
