WHO WE ARE
The original Women’s Organization for National Prohibition Reform (WONPR) was founded in 1929 to rescue America’s families and communities from the ravages of ten years of alcohol prohibition. These women had been instrumental in bringing about alcohol prohibition, yet once they saw the damage this was having on their homes, families and communities, they united to bring about an end to this failed and unconstitutional legislation.
In 2006, after thirty years of a failed “War on Drugs”,
the tragic consequences of prohibition are back – gang warfare,
arbitrary and racially biased enforcement, corrupt politicians, and broken
homes. It is clear that
the drug war is a war on families, children, women, minorities, the poor and
the disenfranchised. The facts are startling– mothers of nearly 200,000
children are incarcerated. That’s means that 72 percent of women on probation,
70 percent of women in local jails, 65 percent of women in state prisons and
59 percent of women in federal prisons have minor children. More startling
is these statistics only represent the number of women and children in the
prison system affected by the drug war. The incarceration of parents has a
generational impact. It has been proven that children who have a parent in
jail are twice as likely as their peers to spend time in prison themselves.
