Budget Cuts on Prisoners

Ruth Kovacs was joined by Patty Katz, from Partnerships for Safety and Justice and Tony Perkins, former World Council Chair for Oxford House. They discussed the cuts in Washington State Prison funds for drug and alcohol treatment for prisoners before and after release. Folks are asked to send stories about their addiction to drugs and alcohol and how treatment programs affected their lives. Send the one-page stories to Partnerships for Safety and Justice.

Also, Ruth would like to receive stories about Anne Rose Pearce or copies of  “. . .after seventeen years” the newsletter distributed by Anne Rose. We want to preserve her memory and document her work. If you can help us, please contact Ruth at KBOO

Mark your calendar! February 13 at PSU – An event for Mumia!
