Hello everyone, I am Jon. I am here because I think our system is broken at its foundation. I am not sure if it is a society problem or one that starts in family or both. Don't get me wrong I don't blame familys for someone being in prison. It is the american family structure. It is a cultural thing.
Anyway I started becoming active with a Question Answer site for inmates. It is a way for people to interact with those incarcerated. Then the inmates asked me if I would do a low cost pen pal site that they could afford so I did that. I am also working on job placement and resources for just released convicts. I don't make any money. As a matter of fact I spend most of my free income doing it. I just hope it helps someone. Many people say I am misplacing my efforts that people in jail should stay there and rot. I dissagree. It is such an underfunded area of our society and 1 in 100 people are in prison. That scares me.
