Power Inside is a human rights and harm reduction organization that serves women and girls who are survivors of gender-based violence and oppression and impacted by incarceration, street life and abuse. Through a prison abolition framework, they fight for social change via direct services, advocacy and activism, radical harm reduction, street outreach, leadership development and public education. Recently, Power Inside advocated for the inclusion of incarceration, survival sex, gendered violence, and LGBTQ hate-motivated violence in the city-wide screening tool used to evaluate homeless vulnerability, and successfully pushed for the Healthy Births for Incarcerated Women Act in Maryland.
