The 'Friends of Marcia Powell' are autonomous groups and individuals engaging in prisoner outreach, informal advocacy, and organized protest and direct actions in a sustained campaign to: promote prisoner rights and welfare in America; engage the Arizona public in a creative and thoughtful critique of our system of "justice;” deconstruct the prison industrial complex; and dismantle this racist, classist patriarchy...

Retiring "Free Marcia Powell"

As of December 2, 2010 (with occasional exceptions) I'm retiring this blog to direct more of my time and energy into prisoner rights and my other blogs; I just can't do anyone justice when spread so thin. I'll keep the site open so folks can search the archives and use the links, but won't be updating it with new posts. If you're looking for the latest, try Arizona Prison Watch. Most of the pieces posted here were cross-posted to one or both of those sites already.

Thanks for visiting. Peace out - Peg.

Mississippi & Illinois Prison Watches Born.

Necessity has given birth to a new Illinois Prison Watch and Mississippi Prison Watch, thanks to our comrades at the Prison Reform Community Center. Anyone interested in administering and authoring for either site - or a prison watch in any other state - please join PRCC through their links and contact Rebecca or Annabelle about how you can help. There is all sorts of room for creative license. In the meantime, we'll just keep building them and adding new articles as they arise.
