Write On! is a group of concerned students, workers and Ontario residents who support and stand in solidarity with prisoners in Canada, both in the Provincial and Federal systems. We believe that providing resources and information to prisoners is a way we can improve the quality of their lives.
We answer prisoners’ letters and respond to their research requests. This can include requests for info on: general legal information, resources, programs and services, information on prison rules and policies, and other kinds of information that they need.
We also strive to learn from prisoners themselves through their letters, about the conditions of prison life, and the systemic issues they face. We use this information to raise awareness about these issues, and to advocate for a criminal justice system where people will be treated with dignity and humanity.
