We all say “knowledge is power,” yet the budget for prisons is growing
at a higher rate than that for schools…increasing incarceration rates
reveal that something in our system is broken. We can find the
solutions in enlightening minds. Let’s do so.
- Kevin J. Marinelli, SCI Greene (Death Row)
We all know that our nation has a long way to go when it comes to
prioritizing education over incarceration. Books Through Bars lives in
that gap–the space between where we are now, and the future world we
envision. We occupy that gap by creating opportunities for education
both inside and outside prison walls.
As we move forward into a new year, ripe with the possibility for new
forms of justice to emerge, we thank you considering supporting Books
Through Bars this holiday season. Our vision: a world where we each
have access to the education that will give us power over our own
futures, is only possible with the help of people like you!
