Helping Lifes/Incarcerated: Lifer Essay Contest.

We advocate for lifer inmates and their loved ones, discuss ways to effect change and offer support. We believe the Life With-Out Parole is both archaic and inhumane. It violates Article 8 of the U.S. Constitution against cruel and unusual punishment. Therefore, changes in PA law need to be implemented. We try to recruit others, enlist public support and contact members of the PA Legislature when we feel laws need to be changed.  A big Thank You to the writers and to the Christ United Methodist Church of Bethel Park for sponsoring the prizes.    Check out the Book of Lifer Essay Contest:   http://bit.ly/2hkWLjZ

Community Involvement.

We must stand against this injustice and bring our grievances to our leaders and politicians and to do so, we need a community which understands the issue of the lifer sentence. We aim to humanize incarcerated individuals in the public's view, partner with community organizations throughout Pittsburgh and use intersectionality to address the issue of the LWOP sentence. Through petitions, actions, reports and real stories we must band together to bring justice to our loved ones inside.
