Art from Solitary, Eastham Unit

Jorge Garcia sent us this card after his recent parole denial.  He is in solitary despite good behavior, and was devastated to learn that he will not return home to his daughter and aging mother this year. Jorge hopes to find a pen pal to keep him connected with the outside world. He also likes books and making art! If you’d like to make a new friend please send Jorge a message!

Summer Update

Hello everyone, we are still active! Editor here to give an update since it’s been a minute! I have been a little distracted by several different personal projects, prisoner support projects, and generally been caught up in writing letters and visiting inmates in my “free” time. Now that I have wrapped up some work on things, I will start catching up on posts soon! I may even have a second (newly) free-world editor joining me this summer!

What we are doing this week:

We are excited to learn from, dialogue with, and network with other abolitionists at the Fight Toxic Prisons convergence in Denton this weekend! Learn more at:
