"Calls from Home: Mama's Day Special," a radio project that connects incarcerated mothers to their families, friends, and communities.Media Literacy Project, Strong Families, and Thousand Kites need your help to produce "Calls from Home: Mama's Day Special," a radio project that connects incarcerated mothers to their families, friends, and communities. With your support we'll send voices through barbed-wire to our millions of neighbors behind bars this Mama's Day.
In the U.S., we have a nation inside our nation. In America's prison-nation, mothers are forced to give birth in shackles and families are asked to pay exorbitant charges to telephone corporations in order to keep in touch with their incarcerated loved ones. As part of our Mama's Day Special we invite you to join two national campaigns: BIRTHING BEHIND BARS and PRISON PHONE JUSTICE CAMPAIGN.
Radio stations email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get a copy of this special broadcast.
Make the call (877-410-4863) sending a message to incarcerated women and then pick a campaign to get involved with:
