I am always looking for websites that have links for resources for inmates or their friends and families. I found this one and it has a LOT of resources listed.
This quote is taken directly form the website:
(We produce a directory that is free to prisoners upon request, and seek to work in solidarity with prisoners, ex-prisoners, their friends and families. We also work with teachers and activists on many prison issues. This work includes building action networks and materials that expose the continuing neglect and outright torture of more than 2 million people imprisoned within the USA; as well as the 5+ million who are under some form of surveillance and control by the so-called justice system.)
This site has a lot of links for resources. I did find that some of the pages are no longer available or don’t work, however there are enough of them so that it is worth a look to see what is available.
One of the resources listed I am interested in is “The Pen” This is a site that has a prison writing program for those who are incarcerated. You can find them at: https://www.pen.org.
There are also a couple of prison library projects who’s aim is to make books available in prisons.
I feel if inmates have the opportunity to read and write, it gives them a pathway to being able to find jobs and keep from returning to prison.
