Please Help Us Help Prisoners. We now have 501(c)3 status, so all donations are tax-free. All donations appreciated!

Loen Kelley was the first publisher to pay incarcerated writers for published stories and, until now, she has funded this operation entirely out of her own pocket. Now, with 501c3 status, Loen is hoping to get others involved.

Will I Die of Coronavirus Before My Release Date in 100 Days?

I hope not to die in the next 145 days. Unfortunately, the possibility of death remains real. In the event of my demise, I ask that my story be told as an example of everything we have gotten wrong with mass incarceration policies. And that my death not be in vain, but serve as a rally cry for those seeking to repair a broken system that routinely discounts the lives of black and brown people.
