Hello family members and advocates of loved ones who are incarcerated.
I have decided to facilitate the first meet-up in downtown Sacramento at Trinity Cathedral Church. I have been assured that we will always have a space for this important and timely meeting.
Let's get together and share stories and ideas about how we can help out loved ones who cannot help themselves. How does one navigate a system that is so fraught with bureaucracy and burdened with ignorance? The prisons in California were made to house 100,000 prisoners, they now house 180,000. The governor has declared the prisons a "state of emergency" and has relinquished control to a Federal Judge, who is working tirelessly to end this nightmare due to lack of immediate health care for the sick and infirmed who remain locked up like animals dying from neglect and disease. Who are these "prisoners" and why do their numbers continue to grow? Are they all really criminals? What can we do here on the outside to ease their pain on the inside? Can we make a difference?
Join me to toss these questions around and share stories so that we may, at the very least, ease our own feelings of powerlessness.
