  1. I am starting a support group to help families fight for their rights to be treated with respect with they visit their loved ones in prison. Stop the threats, harassment, and more. It is time to help families stand up and unit together and fight against a system that can use their power to hurt innocent families and loved ones. familiessticktogether.wordpress.com is my new site that is currently in construction to help bring prisoners families together and protect the family unit.
