Of course, that's exactly what I meant, conlakappa!

Oh, dear heavens, that is horrific. I am so sorry. So lack of appropriate, good legal representation does its structural work in making sure even the prison to prison pipeline works well.

This story is all too common.

Prayers for your cousin are in progress as I write. I had been thinking about what I thought would be his upcoming release.

Hi, conlakappa! It is wonderful to see you here.

So right about awareness being the first step.

Thank you for kind words about CI - and yes, isn't seeta's new blog just wonderful?

Wishing you a great Thursday. And thanks for being here.

I am trying to figure out who everyone is... But it is a pleasure to read such sane intelligent respectful comments.

Hello everybody. I just wanted to add two organizations to the list. I do graphic arts work for both the Inside-Out Center and Witness to Innocence, both based in Philadelphia.

Witness to Innocence is at www.witnesstoinnocence.org. They advocate against the death penalty, and their speakers' bureau is comprised of death row exonerees.

The Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program can be found at www.insideoutcenter.org. It is a revolutionary education program with both "inside" and "outside" students learning together.

I thought these might be of interest to people here.

Sorry to be so late. Someone looked a lot like you sent me to some reading material... and I got lost in it. ;)

Wonderful. I didn't remember how terrific this post was. And was much of this sourced for NN this year? It's just such powerful information. I love throwing these numbers at people and seeing their reactions.

Thank you for the best weapon of all: information.

i'm here, registered and so appreciately of your moving this series over to this wonderful new home. Perhaps it is a place for me to write about climate justice and the rights to equal share of carbon space for development issues.

Now back to read:)

hiya, foufou.

Very, very happy to see you here. Welcome. Take a look around the larger Critical Mass Progress blog if you have a minute.

Deeply appreciate your kind words and sending link to faith-based folks, leftrev. I've done much work in faith communities around restorative/transformative justice. These are communities where this work can and will take deep root, if only we nurture it.

Yes. And cats, also, too. Lizzie and Flower are cheering you.

As am I.

((((sagenotsweet))))) I like the name.

Indeed, the system has made us numb and we have to do something about it to change it. The truth is we need to elect real Democrats. (I cringe to even try to say that fake ass saying --"more and better Democrats")

One thing: if folks are having problems, empty your cache! Yes, I know how odd that sounds in Criminal Injustice.

But really. Just do it. If you don't know what it is or how to do it, enter "empty cache" in your browser's Help menu.

At some point I will. I'm actually very busy with work right now, including fundraising materials for Witness, and website updates for Inside-Out.

I will see about getting permission from Lori (Inside-Out founder and director) to reprint some things. She may also want to write something, but her life is way too busy (makes mine look downright lazy).

Working with these two organizations has pried my eyes wide open.
