Focuses on approaches and strategies for creating a community advocacy network for federally sentenced women (FSW). Discusses the theoretical and philosophical basis for the proposed Community Advocacy model. This model promotes a federal strategy to implement a provincial community-based, pre-sentencing process to promote minimal incarceration for FSW through increased community participation. Concludes with recommendations for further planning and discussion.
