Speaker: Chuck Barrett
Chuck will give a presentation on Prisoner Visitation and Support (PVS) within the context of mass incarceration and the criminal justice system.
As a result of a promo effort by the Associate Warden at FCI La Tuna, there has been a sudden influx of new prisoners wishing to have PVS visits. It increased from 3 to 16 in the span of a week. Meeting this demand is important, thus we need more visitors. Chuck has flyers and a DVD promo that shows what it’s like and gives a perspective on it from the visitor’s experience and that of prisoners as well. Please come and join the discussion. This might be something you would enjoy doing. It is similar to some of our other Justice Projects.
In addition to being a PVS prison visitor, Chuck Barrett has been a prisoner (as a result of civil rights, anti-war, and southern labor organizing activities), a visitor on Virginia’s death row, a paralegal for the ACLU national prison project, and the founder and director of the Community Justice Ministry of Washington, D.C., which provided alternatives to imprisonment both pretrial and post conviction to the D.C. courts.
