The women at CCWF ( California) are writing they need HELP!
“We are not getting Tampons, we were given a handful for a room of 8 women for a whole month. They have cut our meals in 1/2 and we no longer get meat, we are given only Soy. Women are going hungry. There are to many packed in too small of spaces and women are now starting to get into fights. Women are being locked in isolation. We are not getting our mail. Boxes are not being delivered. There are no jobs nor classes for us that were transferred over from VSPW. We are told the waiting lists are very long. The ones that do have jobs are only earning 8 Cents an hour for very long, hard shifts. We are also not getting cleaning supplies”.
They ask please that advocates and Media to let people know they need help ASAP!
