Calls From Home

Dear Green Dove Readers,

May this note find you with peace in your hearts and homes. Those behind bars hope you will take a few minutes and respond to this holiday call.

Also, remember those in your own communities! In Bloomington, Indiana, you might contact the Unitarian Universalist Friends of Prisoners Task Force to see how you might help out -

Join the 11th annual CALLS FROM HOME holiday radio broadcast for prisoners and their families!

Listen To Calls A National Radio Show For Prisoners And Their Families

Join the 11th annual CALLS FROM HOME holiday radio broadcast for prisoners and their families.

The United States has 2.4 million people behind bars. Thousand Kites wants you to lend your voice to a powerful grassroots radio broadcast that reaches into our nation's prison and tells those inside they are not forgotten.

We are asking you to call our toll-free line 877-410-4863 and speak directly to those behind bars this holiday season. An answering machine will record your message. Read a poem, sing a song, or just speak directly from you heart. Speak to someone you know or to everyone--make it uplifting.

It as simple as calling 877-410-4863 and speaking into your phone.

We are making a special call to poets to support our project this year. Poets click here.

CALLS FROM HOME will broadcast on over 200 radio stations across the country and will be available for download on our website December 21st.

Call anytime (now through December 20) at 877-410-4863 and record your message. Listen to calls here.

Learn how you can help blog, distribute, broadcast, or support this project. We want you to use the show as an education tool in your community. Sign-up to recieve a free kit here and radio stations can visit here to learn how to carry the program. Spread the word in your community with our poster.

CALLS FROM HOME is a project of Thousand Kites and a national network of grassroots organizations working for criminal justice transformation.

So call right now at 877-410-4863.
