    Providing Services for Incarcerated Inmates Prison Pen Pal

    By corresponding with a prison pen pal, you not only make someone's day, but you may also help reduce the rate of inmate recidivism. Your "snail mail" letters to these prisoners helps increase inmate moral and promote human rights and rehabilitation. So many brothers and sisters in need of hope and a friend to share we can now provide inner power to these forgotten souls with upliftment.

    HAVE A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER IN PRISON?

    Often the answer is yes , many of us who are hard hit by the system of unjustice and watch our love one's / friends and people we know from the community become a sististic in the prison system , Good news is we now striking back with mental forces to uplift our forgotten one's who is currently incarcerated in a state or federal prison alike . Brothers of Destee.com family & community now setting up a program to reach out to these worthy souls by pen paling a letter of encouragement as we base a list of family / friends / political prisoner and black people we know through this outreach, with some of the great resources we have today to not only uplift many of these prisoner but as well teach , we strongly ask that our sisters join in and take part to outreach thousand of women who are in captivity beyond the walls of destruction.

    We need to make a change and start by warming hope into the system that has so many of our poeple in prisons nation wide become a healer , a helping hand and voice to the brothers & sisters who are left to rotten and die in these walls of unjustice let's now save a soul.

    An idea

    I don't know much about what all is allowed by inmates, but if TV's are allowed are internet enabled devices allowed?

    These days you can get broadband on a laptop with a usb modem the size of a pack of gum.

    Maybe we can setup a program where we offer an internet device in exchange for required attendance at online educational classes leading to some real skills development.

    What all are inmates allowed to have?

    Once again - thank you brothers for getting this started.

    PEACE

    web use

    tv is allowed b/c it's content is already regulated by the feds, also, it is a 1-way medium (no input). the web is another matter entirely.

    right now, the matter is somwhat n flux, which is a good thing. typically, incarceration terminated not only direct use of the internet by inmates, but also barred them from even receiving printed materials which hv been downloaded off the web by som1 else (any1 else). recently, however, legal challenges hv emerged.

    when a friend sent georgia inmate danny williams some legal research that had been downloaded from the Internet earlier this year, state prison guards confiscated the package.

    prison officials said the material was prohibited under a 5-year-old regulation that, according to state department of corrections commissioner james donald, bars inmates from receiving any printed material downloaded from the Internet. the policy is supposedly designed to prevent inmates from gaining access to material on the Internet that could compromise security; bombmaking instructions, 4 example.

    now, williams is challenging the policy in federal court, :welldone: the latest in a series of cases in which inmates are seeking changes in prison regulations or state law to try to use the Internet to do research or communicate with the outside world.

    state and federal inmates do not have direct access to computers. however, some have used written correspondence with friends or family members to set up and maintain websites and e-mail accounts to air grievances, solicit legal assistance and express political views. so, this is another area where change is possible.
