Mother’s Day Special: Connecting Incarcerated Mothers and Families Through Radio

12 May

Media Literacy Project, Strong Families, and Thousand Kites invite you to listen to the most powerful Mama’s Day radio program ever.  Gripping messages poured into their phone lines speaking directly to incarcerated women in our nation’s prisons.Broadcast it on your radio station or play it at a community meeting to spark a dialogue. Send voices through barbed-wire to our millions of neighbors behind bars this Mama’s Day.

In the U.S., we have a nation inside our nation. In America’s prison-nation, mothers are forced to give birth in shackles and families are asked to pay exorbitant charges to telephone corporations in order to keep in touch with their incarcerated loved ones. As part of their Mama’s Day Special, Thousand Kites invites you to join two national campaigns: BIRTHING BEHIND BARS and PRISON PHONE JUSTICE CAMPAIGN.

Non-commercial radio stations can download the program and broadcast it without restrictions.  Contact Thousand Kites at team@thousandkites.org for additional information.
