CIW Acting Warden Jennifer Core at Soroptimist event

On March 18, California Institution for Women (CIW) Warden (A) Jennifer Core spoke to a group of over 500, with over half them being pre-teen kids.

The 15th annual Stepping Up event seeks to build confidence in young women moving from elementary to middle school. This year’s gathering was held at Chino High School and was hosted by Soroptimist International of Chino Valley. The topic was positivity over prison.

The event is a perfect way to highlight Women’s History Month, according to organizers.
