On Tuesday, February 21, Friends of Iowa Women Prisoners will meet from noon to 1:00 pm at Wesley United Methodist Church, 800 East 12th Street in Des Moines. The meetings are open to the public and there is no cost associated with attending. Bring your lunch and listen to Marty Ryan, Legislative Advocate for Justice Reform Consortium, give an update on legislative bills that affect those incarcerated in Iowa’s correctional facilities.
Later that evening, Marty Ryan will also speak to those in attendance at Voices to Be Heard, a support group for families and children of an incarcerated loved one. The group gathers to support and comfort those who know too well the grief that comes to those left behind when someone they love is incarcerated.
Both Friends of Iowa Women Prisoners and Voices to Be Heard are group members of Justice Reform Consortium.
