Herstories is an initiative by HousingPlus and WCJA to support efforts to close the Rose M. Singer Center at Rikers Island. Herstories is an opportunity for women who have been detained at Rosie’s to tell their stories. For too long, women at Rikers have been overlooked. Now is the time to make sure women’s voices and experiences are front and center.
We are excited to announce that a 3-minute video highlighting some of these women’s stories, which premiered in March 2019 at the 9th Annual Beyond the Bars Conference of the Center for Justice at Columbia University, is now available to watch online.
