Pennsylvania Inmates Books

11-16PennPrisonerBooks.jpg

A new policy disallows the sending of written materials to incarcerated individuals in Pennsylvania correctional facilities. In order to have access to reading material, inmates must first purchase a nearly $150 tablet and then pay a private company for e-books. Placing financial barriers on quality of life and the opportunity to rehabilitate and self-educate is, frankly, inhuman and inherently racist. The only people this serves are those who stand to profit from prisons or the selling of access to reading material.

Your DGB for this weekend is to read this article explaining the new policy, follow this site working to continue reading access, and send a message to the Pennsylvania DOC registering your concerns.

Your DGB for this weekend is to elect Pennsylvania democrats to the House of Representatives.

Mandatory redistricting in Pennsylvania adds to the intrigue this November, with ten new elections taking place across the state.

New District 7 is without an incumbent. Help Susan Wild win the seat.

Matt Cartwright will defend his blue seat in District 8.

And in District 17, Conor Lamb (of March’s Special Election fame) will need a boost to unseat Keith Rothfus.
