New Jersey Prisoners Support Network

Prisoners, ex prisoners, friends and family members of prisoners and community activists in New Jersey have begun forming a Prisoner Support Network. So far two meetings have been held to discuss ways to end various forms of repression and discrimination in the New Jersey DOC (such as harsh isolation conditions in control units, banning of afro centric materials, beatings, etc.). Members recently held a vigil outside the New Jersey State Prison at Trenton to protest conditions in the control unit there.

Among efforts being used and discussed to focus public attention on prison conditions in New Jersey are petitions and a video titled Prison Conditions in New Jersey.

The network seeks members and support from interested people in New Jersey in order to grow and expand. It has regular meetings as well. Any PLN readers in New Jersey or who have contact with prisoners and activists in New Jersey are encouraged to pass this information along. For more information write: Prisoner Support Network, 972 Broad St. 6th Floor, Newark, NJ. 07102 or call (201) 643-3192 (no collect calls, please).
