Write a prisoner


Below are prisoners now on long term solitary confinement, many on hunger strike, and many mentally ill in no way able to cope with the conditions- your encouragement can mean the difference between life and death and also can be the light in their life that shows them how to survive this ordeal with psyche intact.

We are always available for questions or complaints if you do decide to write an inmate and we also offer forwarding mail service if you do not want to give the prisoner you address. email pgswan3@aol.com for more information.

Except for the first two prisoners listed here, prisoners below were part of lists sent by other inmates and we have written some and want to write more to get their stories and offer encouragement. GO to Stranded friends for stories of more prisoners who need better contact with the outside world .All could use your encouragement . Some of the data on the inmates listed on AC at bottom of this post is  disturbing- so young, mentally ill , getting no treatment and instead they get indefinite solitary confinement. For some, it looks like they will be released this year- untreated, with no programming.

We need help reaching out to many of these inmate and if you do decide to help , feel free to use our return address and let us know your real address. Ask for their story and you can tell them that we will spread the word about their predicament and will write back . If you want to be part of this, email pgswan3 @aol.com to get started.
Go to Stranded friends for more prisoners who have given us their stories and email us if you choose to write inmates at end of list who are on AC and we have no contacted yet.




My name is Justin Lee Douglas #322852 and I’m a 34 year old white male who is in prison in Green Bay Correctional Institution (GBCI).I’ve have a hernia for over 18 months and have been steadily denied adequate main medications! I’ve also been taken off all my anxiety medications and have been in segregation for 16 months and I’ already a mentally ill inmate (MH2B) and being in segregation is only making me worse! I’ll be going to NO FOOD NOT WATER hunger strike on January 8th, 2017 until I either die or I’m transferred out of GBCI! I Plead to all of you who read this to pray for me and send any cards or letters to emotionally support me in my time of need, so that I know I’m no alone  (A.K.A.the forgotten man) my ADDRESS is PO BOX 19033, Green Bay, WI 54307. Thank you very much for your support.



Please write a nurturing note to Daniel Dirk below.
Daniel Dirk 633088, GBCI, PO Box 19033, Green Bay, WI 54307
 born 1998, 19 years old; out date 6 2 17

On January 10th 2017, Justin Lee Douglas , an inmate in GBCI,  sent FFUP a notice about Daniel Dirk. Here are his words:” A guy by the name of Daniel Dirk, 633088 his wrist with a nail clippers! He was on a hunger strike for four meals  already and wasn’t talking to staff and CO Johnson still gave him a finger nail clippers and when she came to pick them up he refused to give them up and stated to her that he was going to use them to kill herself and she stated “no you won’t” and “I don’t care , keep them” and pver an hour and a half later while rec was coming in an inmate saw inmate Dirk’s cell window covered in blood and inmate Dirk passed out in a very big puddle of blood and the sgt came to his cell and wasted 10 minutes trying to get inmate Dirk to respond before calling HSU or a supervisor up to seg and over 30 minutes for the ambulance to be called! The staff don’t do any kinds of counts during the day and then never take any inmates seriously when they proclaim that they’re Suicidal!
Justin Lee Douglas  and other inmates have gone on hunger strike- we are getting their info
The activist community is asked to mount a protest campaign and send mass mailings to all news outlets.

Write A Prisoner! with either a friendly card or longer term penpal relationship- this is one of the  most rewarding ways to get involved.

Here is a link to the post of one prisoner who I first encountered when he deeply entrenched in a seg cycle- my letters , he told me later were that light. Now he is a helper to all in there and through his incredible art, communicates with the world.

We are always available for questions or complaints if you do decide to write an inmate and we also offer forwarding mail service if you do not want to give the prisoner you address. email pgswan3@aol.com for more information.

Adrian Leonte White 00537065 WCI ;bd 1992; 24y.o.;out date 10 21 17
My name is Adrian Leonte White and this is my first time writing you and won’t be my last!  I’m writing you in regards to ”hunger strikers” and the “cruel and unusual punishment “ that goes on around her that never gets heard because people either are “too insane to understand” because of Medical abuse by psychiatrist or people being put on AC till they go literally insane. I ‘m going to start with me and my situations. I’m on hunger strike, it’s been almost one week. I’ve only been pulled out one time by Amy Gunderson, she do not work over in WCI full time no more. I’m on my strike because of the AC people and how they sexually abuse us and the list goes on. But I really need you to pass my name on to people who reach  out for the hunger strikers and all the newsletters Because the AC and other crap needs to stop.
I’m a 23 year old Black man, for the first time in my life, I’ve never seen no shit like this in my life of living! These COs are really in Waupun raping, lying to other inmates about what another inmate said about their crew just to get a fight started, stealing medications and taking them home. Putting their fingers in people’s assholes, not one time but 5 other times since I been here at WCI- letting the homosexuals have  sex with Cos and inmates.  The staff are now going around asking all the inmates if they are gay or bisexual. And now the business office is taking 50 % of people’s money. So now if you had a court order that 50% be taking away for you, now 50% more is taken away and that’s 100%. Its crazy because some inmates are going to court because some of us are court ordered only 25% under Act 355 I think. We have not been noted by authentic people, only Department of Corrections! Other Cos are going around saying:”We are going to break you mother fuckers down.”Waupun is a mess and the lady C0 who got stabbed was calling the inmate “fag “and other unprofessional things. I am a short timer, I go home in 10 months and I’m going to fight with you and other people to stop this insanity! I’m thinking about starting a TV and other property program because people can’t afford anything and the CO take action against that. They don’t want us to have shit! They Say we are “pigs and pigs get shit and eat it.”They make over 100 thousand dollars of food and feed us small amount. All of our food goes in the trash!
At end, asks to be connected to advocacy groups and lists of resources for free clothing etc

 His friends call him "Uhuru".


This man has been a mentor to me, along with a few others in there, for the 16 plus years I have worked with inmates and their families. I consider him a visionary and political prisoner, Shortly before the hunger strike started, he was transferred to Columbia  Correctional and has been completely isolated from the rest of the movement. He needs encouragement and would love to write to someone who is serious about justice. He continues to do nonstop legal work and has many essays -you can see his writing, legal work and petition to DA in Washington here. 


Here are some prisoners under 30 who are on administrative confinement(AC)- long term solitary with no definite ending and no definite reason. After being told that 15 new people were just put on AC at WSPF, FFUP did an open records request asking for all names and numbers of AC prisoners> The list has 77 names. Here are a few of the younger ones.

Even a nurturing card would help these guys feel less alone. And, if you feel like writing a personal letter to prisoner or a nurturing note, you can use FFUP’s return address. Just make sure I get the real address of you want the prisoner’s  response. Here is the return address( if you do not want the prisoner to have your real address): Your name c/o FFUP 29631 Wild Rose Drive, Blue River, WI 53518.

If you don’t want to write a personal letter: you can send this template letter>

Template letter

Hello, you do not know me, I am part of a non-profit working with prisoners and their families. We got you name and those of all prisoners on AC in WSPF through open records and we would like to know more about you. Another group of activists is working on growing a penpal program and will see if they can find a penpal for you and FFUP will use this information to help us better the situation in there and perhaps help you . Please write your story and tell us if we can post it and whether we can use your name .We probably will not be able to type what you write so pl
ease write clearly.

Send you story to Peg Swan c/o FFUP 29631 Wild Rose Drive, Blue River, WI 53518
