Ten More Things You Can Do

leave a comment »

Earlier, I linked to The Nation‘s list of ten ways you can help fight mass incarceration. Here’s another top ten list, courtesy of Legal Services for Prisoners with Children. As always, readers are invited to contribute additional suggestions (just click “Leave a Comment” above). Highlights from the LSPC list:

5. Become informed about conditions of confinement and the movement against the prison industrial complex. Challenge those around you who subscribe to stereotypes about prisoners.

6. If you are an employer, consider hiring former prisoners for job vacancies.
