Prison Letters and Documenting Inmate Abuse in Pennsylvania Prisons.

Thanks for joining us for another edition of "On the Block Radio," a show that takes a critical look at the United States criminal justice system.

On tonight's show, Andy of the Human Rights Coalition talks with us about Write Up, an ongoing event at the Lava Space during which individuals can read and respond to letters from inmates in Pennsylvania prisons. He shares with us the history of Write Up and the Human Rights Coalition (HRC). As well, he describes some of the inhumane conditions that prisoners have written about in their letters to the HRC and how the Write-Up event helps with the effort to document inmate abuse and fight it.

Special Thanks.

The PA Prison Reports are compiled by Andy and Bret of the Human Rights Coalition based on the accounts of prisoner correspondents and the investigations of HRC members.  From the compiled data, the reports are re-written by Andy into the narratives you hear on "On The Block Radio."  Many thanks.  To access written transcripts of the PA Prison Reports, please go
