Community Coalition Enters Georgia Prison!

Our friends at Black Agenda Report are the first to break the amazing story of community members meeting with Georgia’s Corrections officials and being given access to the Inside of a prison.

As one Unprison activist clearly states:

“We understand where we are and how we got here,” explained Rev. Kenny Glasgow of The Ordinary Peoples Society (TOPS) after his visit to Macon State. A former prisoner himself who spent fourteen years behind the walls, Glasgow runs a series of re-entry programs for former inmates in Georgia and Alabama. “We only got to sit down with correctional officials, we only gained access to the prisons because of the courageous stand of those behind the walls. It was their willingness to work together across different lines and to sacrifice the very limited freedom and safety they have that got us to this point. The prisoners have done all they can do now. It’s up to us to build a movement out here that can make the changes which have to be made.”

Continue to rise, join thousands of others, and sign the Petition of Solidarity today!
