Join the Transcription Team!

Announcing: DPA's Transcription Team! Do you want to support the work of DPA but live far from Philadelphia? Or do you have trouble making it to meetings? We are happy to announce a new online volunteering opportunity: The DPA Transcription Team!

Every month we receive dozens and dozens of letters from our members and allies inside PA's prisons. Some of these letters contain public statements to be shared on our website's "Voices from the Inside" section.

Here's where you come in -- if you join the Transcription Team, we will email you scanned copies of one or two statements a month to transcribe into text format to be shared on our website. Just type up the letter and email it back to us within two weeks, and you're done!

If we want to defeat mass incarceration, the voices of people directly impacted by the system must be heard loud and clear. The Transcription Team is a great opportunity for DPA supporters far and wide to contribute to lifting up these essential voices in the struggle.
