Group Description

If you throw in parolees and probationers the combined number of people under some form of correctional supervision in the United States rises to nearly 7 million, or an estimated one out of every 32 adults. Originally founded in Youngstown, Ohio (home to Ohio's death row), this moderated listserv brings together a national and international network of people who are concerned with prisoners' rights and prison alternatives. Long-time prisoner advocates, Staughton and Alice Lynd, are part of the Youngstown Prison Forum that inspired the formation of this forum. A related portal, www.Prisonersolidarity.org, offers current news as well as original essays written by prisoners, activists and concerned citizens.
