Activism

There are many ways to ACTIVATE.

* Teaching someone how to read is ACTIVISM! 

* Helping someone understand citizenship…including voting, building community centers, caring for those in need…is ACTIVISM!

Only a few organizations are listed below to “prime the pump” to help you start your search for the organization that works on your area of interest..

Writing Letters!

You can learn a lot about the challenges within the system through conversations with pen pals.  This is truly radical activism as you can actually touch other people’s lives…people who can really benefit from a connection to true humanity, vs. ‘programs’, interventions, missionaries and other forms of ‘charity’.

 

Lost VaultLV

Since September 2003, LostVault has been dedicated to maintaining a free place for inmates to find pen pals, and for you to find them. Unlike many of the other prison pen pal sites, we do not charge you OR the inmate this service as long as the ad is posted via the internet by a loved one or friend. For ads posted by our staff, there is a nominal $10 fee (updated 02/01/2015) for all inmates other than death row, who receive free ads. http://lostvault.com/penpals/main.asp
