Wanted: Information on deaf inmates in prisons & jails….


Received via email today:  If you know of an inmate that is hearing impaired , please share with Jeremy Young ( contact below).  His work is incredible, honest and very informative…..

 

I wanted to send out an update on the latest project that we have started working on.  We are planning on doing a half-hour program looking at deaf inmates in jails and prisons.  I wanted to see if anybody is familiar with any resources, stories, contacts, story lines, people or places where I should begin to reach out to?  So far I have found very few articles touching on this subject.

In case you haven’t had the chance to see all of our programs that cover criminal justice issues….here are the links:

  1. We have started a blog dedicated to precisely this subject. It’s a WordPress blog, http://deafinprison.com. We have several contributors who are immersed and well versed in this issue. Please visit our site, and perhaps we can engage in link sharing or cross-contributing.

    Thank you, BitcoDavid
