Another great new resource for the library

Human Rights in Action: Handbook for Women Serving Federal Sentences
This booklet explains the rights women have while in prison and while out on conditional release, and discusses some of the ways women prisoners can exercise their rights and avoid having them restricted further. Another purpose of the booklet is to aid in the training of prisoner advocates inside and outside prison.

Authors of this booklet are the Canadian Association of Elizabeth Fry Societies (CAEFS) , the Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) , and Strength in Sisterhood (SIS).

This looks like an excellent resource both for our group and the EIFW women. We should try to either get a print copy from EFry or print off a couple of copies for the EIFW library. Maybe Tabitha could look into getting a copy for the library? And Liz FL, could you add this to the bibliography you have been compiling?
