Western Australia's response to poverty and homelessness is imprisonment.

Western Australia refuses to change the laws where people who have no criminal convictions are imprisoned if they do not have the capacity to pay a fine.  People are languishing in prison for not being able to pay their fines.  Single Aboriginal mothers make up the majority of those in prison who do not have the capacity to pay fines. They are living in absolute poverty and cannot afford food and shelter for their children let alone pay a fine. They will never have the financial capacity to pay a fine.  So we would like 10,000 donors to raise funds to free women from prison and have warrants vacated.  

If you can financially assist this movement it would be greatly appreciated.  The funds will only be used to release people from prison or pay outstanding warrants.

After donating please contact the Attorney General Honourable John Quigley on his email Minister.Quigley@dpc.wa.gov.au and demand that these discriminatory laws be repealed as a matter of urgency. The WA Government must not use prison as the default response to poverty and homelessness and no one should be imprisoned because they cannot afford to pay a fine. 

This campaign has been set up by Debbie Kilroy, CEO of Sisters Inside Inc. The funds raised will be used to release people from prison and pay warrants so they are not imprisoned.

Thanks for all your support.

Our new target is 10,000 donors supporting #freethepeople campaign so we can release all impoverished Aboriginal mothers from prison in Western Australia. Poverty is not a crime.
