Below are prisoners now on long term solitary confinement, many hunger strike, most 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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Many of the prisoners below were part of lists sent by other inmates and we have written them to get their stories and offer encouragement. They could your encouragement now also. Some are especially 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.

Next Four are from December letter(read it by clicking here), we are writing for their personal stories:
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.
