We thought it would be extremely helpful if we could provide you with a list of organizations and
individuals around the country who are willing to help prisoners. It's a rarity in this day and age, so do
yourself a favor and check them out. We also made sure that we didn't leave the general public out of
this one and put some place on here that could provide you with information that would give them a little
bit of an idea on how prisons really are in America. We've even added some of your representatives in
Congress who would be willing to help. You might want to know what they're going to do for you...but
remember that YOU voted them in, and now it's time to make them work FOR you. Besides, most of
them are genuinely interested in what you have to say. So, Take a stand and let America know that
you're not happy with the situation. We've been quite for too long!!!

In the future, we are going to try to provide you with some of the state reps who are also willing to
help, other organizations and even individuals who are possibly in the same situation that you are.
Remember, we're just starting out, so it's going to take us a while to get all the good information you
need. However, if you know of an organization, individual or representative who might be able to offer
some assistance to others, let us know and we'll get it added to the list. Maybe it could help out
someone, or just let them know that they aren't alone in this situation.
