Feel free to print the newsletter to send to loved ones, friends or pen pals!
As of 12.3.20, we have 4522 subscribers receiving the Fair Shake newsletter in federal prisons around the country, throughout the Wisconsin Department of Corrections (DOC), and in the Oregon Department of Corrections.
The Wisconsin DOC charges $.10 per message and around 3400 of the readers are in WI. We are now building readerships in OR where the messages cost $.25 each. In most of the newsletters I ask for ideas, reflections and responses to questions or ideas posed….so the time and cost are high, but the ‘conversation’ is invaluable! In this way, the incarcerated readers actually hear ideas directly from each other.
The best news is, several of the incarcerated readers are also Fair Shake donors! I apply everything the incarcerated donors send to the newsletter budget. This is the power of UBUNTU in action!
Newsletter readers have expressed interest in wanting to play chess with folks who would be willing to play the ‘old school’ way…as people have done for centuries through letters, but now through the Corrlinks service! Please email me if you’re interested and I will connect you with a player. You can find me at outreach(at)fairshake.net.
Sorry, but I do not email a monthly newsletter to the public. If you’d like to volunteer to get one started, please let me know!
Incarcerated readers: sign up for the FS newsletter by emailing outreach(at)fairshake.net!
