Reach out to death row inmates

Today, someone I love greatly, is heading over to the State Penitentiary in Walla Walla to spend the next two days visiting with prisoners on death row. 
As you can imagine the prisoners are disappointed that the Washington State Judicial Committee, in the state legislature, last week decided NOT TO VOTE on the ending of the death penalty in Washington state. That dodge is under review by everyone interested in eliminating execution as an option in Washington.

Please read the following and help us if you so choose-

Sister Helen Prejean,"There are no more marginalized, thrown-away, and leprous people in our society than death-row inmates."
We are advocating for more humane treatment of prisoners who will spend the rest of their lives behind bars.
This campaign is to help fund telephone calls for death row prisoners.
Prisoners on death row have little ability to pay for calls to family. They are often in solitary confinement without physical interaction with anyone. The guards, for the most part, do not speak with them.
Prisoners can only make telephone calls to an approved list of people.
Without donations some prisoners will never hear the voice of their loved ones.
Donations will be given to accredited, sanctioned, state approved representatives who manage prisoner funds for phone calls. 

Thanks you so much-
