Calls From Home now through Dec. 7, 2009
We are asking you to take a minute to call in a message to the 2.3 million people who are behind bars this holiday season.
It's easy. Call our toll-free line at 877-518-0606 anytime from now until December 7th.
An answering machine will record your message. Your call will broadcast on over 200 radio stations across the country. Don't worry if you mess up because we will edit the calls.
This is the 10th year for "Calls from Home," a program that connects family members to their loved ones in prison and educates the public about the criminal justice system. Hundreds of family members, former prisoners, staff, and citizens call in songs, poems, and messages of hope.
Poets: We are calling on our poet friends to make a special submission. Learn more.
Friends: We have setup a online system for you to send a letter to your editor. Speak up now.
Speak from the heart and let people know they are not forgotten. Learn more about our project at www.callsfromhome.org.
Don't forget to call: 877-518-0606.
