People need to know what is happening in our prisons and they just don't-only the few that are directly involved in the debacle know- so the most important thing to do is to write and email the media. Over the next months we will be giving lots of sample letters- attacking the problem from different angles. we must make the DOC uncomfortable or there will be no changes except for the worse- the public is listening for now- help us get accurate information to them by weighing on with your point of view.  
here are a few emails but your local paper, facebook etc are probably best.
