Why this petition matters
Human connection. The ability to stay connected to loved ones while incarcerated. Recidivism is much less when inmates stay connected to people who care about them. But Dept of Corrections denies family, spouses, partners, and friends the right to be approved for visitation and video visitation if they are on probation. Even if in good standing. This is a violation of basic human rights as well as civil rights. Please stand up and be heard. Allow our loved ones the chance to heal and stay connected to their families and friends while paying their debt to society. Please sign this petition and be heard. Please fight for those of us who have complied and only want to support and mentor men and woman who are serving time.
