epic ambassadors

The LOHM has created a visionary legislative policy advocacy program to address policies that harm people who have been impacted by the criminal legal system. EPIC is a powerful opportunity to unify incarcerated, and formerly incarcerated women, and girls to work collectively on social justice causes.

There are currently 1.3 million women under the supervision of the criminal justice system. The Ladies of Hope Ministries national advocacy network will transform criminal justice policies that disproportionately affect women and girls. EPIC Ambassadors is a continuation and evolution of all the work we do at The Ladies of Hope Ministries.

Our strategy will deploy EPIC Ambassadors throughout the nation.

Our Ambassadors will focus their initial legislative and policy advocacy in key states supported by outreach into directly-affected communities in the population centers throughout each state and working with established organizations and coalitions.

Because our work at the state and local level will be directed by our local Ambassadors, our targeted messaging, engagement, and advocacy will be local, feel local, and reflect the concerns of local communities, even as they accomplish our national goals.

State campaigns will include:

• Quarterly policy convenings that offer updates, the opportunity to build coalition, and training.

• Targeted media outreach using of FOWI and EPIC Ambassadors.

• Locally run and planned social media campaigns
