“The new Prison Focus was incredible. The Legal info was very much needed. There are a couple of lawsuits prisoners are working on regarding the COVID-19 conditions. Some are collaborating, but the lack of knowledge amongst the prisoners population in regards to their rights makes it an uphill battle. We have to be smart with our resources. As you said, ‘We have a long way to go in the struggle.’ So thank you.”  Francisco

“Hello. My name is Shante. I am currently serving a 22 year sentence. By chance or by feed your newsletter was slid under my door. From the first page I was in tuned. I have shared the knowledge now with my 15-year-old son and 13-year-old daughter. We must pass on any and all knowledge to our young kings and queens and fulfilling our duty to equip them with the correct tools they need to keep the fight alive. If there’s anything I can do to support this movement please correspond and let me know. As I depart from you I would like to leave you with these words. Be a master of your mind, not a victim of your thinking” Shante

“I’m currently serving a life sentence under the three strikes law. It’s awesome having a resource we can count on and support for bringing us the real deal keeping us updated on the latest Legal news. I’ve been reading it for 10+ years now, starting while I was in solitary confinement. Being around that environment kind of shut me down socially speaking, but there are some thing us old dogs can learn!” William

“Thank you for sending me another issue of prison focus number 61. The first copy was all worn out. I read it and then let the rest of the brothers enjoy reading the articles. Thank you for the information. I challenged my parole denial. It’s good to know that you are out there who are aware of the injustices going on.” Roberto
