Is reducing our prison population worth five minutes of your time?
Speak out for WriteAPrisoner.com today - Write a Governor!
We must tell our elected officials that it is unconstitutional and detrimental for prisons to block mail from WriteAPrisoner.com. We always seek to work with the Department of Corrections so inmates return to society with jobs, homes, educational resources, repaired credit and more – all designed to reduce recidivism - but these options are sometimes prohibited! Some states that have banned WriteAPrisoner.com like to cite inmate fraud as the reason. Little evidence is ever offered to confirm this. Laws and rules already exist to hold inmates accountable for mail fraud, and WriteAPrisoner.com provides detailed information on Detecting and Reporting Fraud. We strongly maintain that this is virtually non-existent with our users and is simply a false alarm sounded by some over-zealous state employees who seek to further punish inmates (and their families) by employing such an arbitrary and unwarranted rule.
Governors need to know that WriteAPrisoner.com is supported by a strong base of rational citizens who believe in common sense solutions.
