Real Women Real Voices is a groundbreaking discussion that will highlight issues and concerns that affect incarcerated women. This panel will feature currently and formerly incarcerated women discussing the affects of incarceration and the carceral state on themselves, their children, and their communities.

This breakout session, focused on women of color and mass incarceration, will feature Topeka Sam, an organizer for the National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls and Founder of The Ladies of Hope Ministry. Topeka is a formerly incarcerated woman who founded Real Women Real Voices only a few months after her release from federal prison. Alice Marie Johnson will also join the conversation via video conference from the Federal Correctional Institution in Aliceville, Alabama. She has served 20 years on a life sentence and was recently denied before President Obama left office.
