In California, NIRH had initially supported the work of Legal Services for Prisoners with Children in San Francisco, who convened two roundtables of formerly incarcerated women and girls, advocates, prison officials, healthcare providers, and policymakers. They discussed shackling and reproductive care provided to incarcerated pregnant women in the San Francisco Bay Area and how to improve current procedures. This work ultimately enabled Legal Services and its coalition partners to successfully advocate for a statewide anti-shackling ban. Later, in 2016, NIRH supported the work of the ACLU of Southern California to ensure aggressive implementation.
