In an effort to help stifle the staggering disconnect of prisoners from the world outside of prison walls, PrisonLawBlog.com and PrisonEducation.com are entering into a partnership to help alleviate this disconnect. The vehicle for this alleviation is a free news service for prisoners, which is provided through the Corrlinks.com/TRULINCS email system.
Prisoners, who have access to the Corrlinks.com/TRULINCS email system, merely need to add firstname.lastname@example.org to their TRULINCS contact list in order to receive these free updates. Updates will be sent three times a week and will consist of every article published at PrisonLawBlog.com and PrisonEducation.com. As a matter of principle, prisoners will not be charged for this service. After all, it is their constitutionally-protected right to receive relevant and timely news that pertains to them.
It is our hope that our free electronic updates service will contribute to the efforts of outlets like Prison Legal News (PLN) and California Lifer Newsletter (CLN) to help shorten or minimize the disconnect of prisoners and the outside world, and to provide relevant and trustworthy news of interest to America’s prison population.
If you correspond with a prisoner — or even several — through the Corrlinks.com/TRULINCS monitored email system, we implore you to advise them as to this new, free electronic update service. Likewise, if you know of any outlets or organizations that exchange emails with prisoners through the Corrlinks.com/TRULINCS system, please notify them about this service. The more incarcerated subscribers we receive, the more of a difference we can make in the lives of America’s prison population.
