Voices from the Inside

This page is for the words we recieve from our allies and comrades inside Pennsylvania's prisons. Many of these statements were given to us to be read at protests and rallys, including the February 20th Occupy for Prisoners rally and the November 19th Tribunal to put the PA Prison System on trial.

If you or someone you love is currently incarcerated and wants to submit something for our Voices from the Inside section, write to us at:
