Tamar Kraft-Stolar

Correctional Association of New York
Director, Women in Prison Project
New York, NY, USA


Tamar Kraft-Stolar has been the Director of the Women in Prison Project at the Correctional Association of New York (CA) since 2003. She manages all aspects of the Project, leads prison visits, drafts legislation, directs advocacy campaigns, and oversees coalition building, public education and leadership development efforts.

Tamar is author of the CA's forthcoming report on reproductive healthcare for women in New York's prisons and co-author of CA reports on the devastating impact of child welfare policies on incarcerated women and the criminal justice system's harsh and unjust response to domestic violence survivors who protect themselves. In recent years, Tamar helped lead successful campaigns to pass legislation that bans the barbaric practice of shackling incarcerated pregnant women during childbirth and that protects the parental rights of incarcerated parents with children in foster care.

Tamar is a member of the pilot cohort for Move to End Violence, a NoVo Foundation initiative aimed at strengthening the US-based movement to end violence against women and girls. Previously, Tamar worked for the CA's Public Policy Project, coordinating its campaign to repeal New York's Rockefeller Drug Laws. She graduated Cornell University summa cum laude with a BA in History and Africana Studies.
