Friend of a Friend is a non-denominational mentoring program to help promote peaceful conflict resolution and social consciousness. Friend of a Friend was founded by political prisoner Eddie Conway and other concerned men in the prison system to provide mentoring to young prisoners. It is currently in 5 prisons around the state, but the program was shut down at JCI in April with no explanation.
We have a meeting with the department this coming tuesday at 9 am (for more information, go here: https://www.facebook.com/events/464124493601702/). We want as many bodies to be present at that meeting to force their hand, but we also want to provide another way of showing support. Please sign this petition so that we can effectively fight and win against this unethical closure of a positive and powerful program.
