Only 105 Women Have Received Clemency by President Obama

Only 105 Women Have Received Clemency by President Obama

44 CAN-DO women have joined a very small and distinguished group of women who have received Executive Clemency.  Sadly, only 105 women have received clemency, to date, by President Obama out of 1715 commutations. Obviously, it is still a man’s world.

We have identified several women who deserve a reconsideration who are featured in this video produced by Harm Reduction Productions for the CAN-DO Foundation and the National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls

Lets #FREEHER by supporting clemency for more women!
