Cages are disabling and traumatizing environments. As a result, prisoners suffer from low morale. They also suffer from a variety of human rights abuses committed by jail and prison officials such as torture and “extremely poor-quality health care.” These forms of violence are state-sanctioned. Therefore, we can’t expect meaningful oversight of Ohio’s concentration camps to come from the state.

Please bring a friend and join us in Room 2 to commemorate Mother’s Day. A film screening of “Mothers of Bedford” will precede our eleventh letter-writing event. This film explores the effects of a long-term prison sentence on the mother-child relationship. After the film, we will send birthday cards to Nichole and Bomani. Nichole was sentenced to life in prison while Bomani was sentenced to death for his role in the Lucasville Rebellion.

Hosted by Central Ohio Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee [IWOC].
