(IWOC) - Calls to prison is one of the quickest and most effective ways to put a prison on notice when they're abusing incarcerated rebels.

Consider joining or organizing a phone cluster with four or five others. This helps feel more connected to the action and helps build mutual accountability.

Making the Call

  1. If you feel like it, block your number by dialing *67 before calling the prison
  2. Call the prison official designated in the post and say something based on the "script". If you don't reach the official ask to get transferred to them. If the person on the line won't transfer you, express your concern to them instead. The more details the better; it reveals that you know exactly what they're doing!
  3. In rare cases they may ask for your information. You're under no obligation to give it! You can give something fake or just continue to repeat your concern.
  4. Report how many calls you made and any information you received from the prison ("Answering machine full" or "Warden said he's received calls all day") to the point person (if you're part of a cluster).
