Prisoners are now eligible for the $1200 coronavirus relief check. PLEASE click this link, print out copies, and mail it in to ANY prisoners in this state. The deadline is Oct 15.
Let’s help our friends behind bars get their coin ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
if you don't have any contacts inside any US state prisons, you should:
- print out and mail the Prison Policy Institute's statement on stimulus checks for prisoners to the directors of state prisons: https://www.prisonpolicy.org/blog/2020/10/05/checks-update/
- print out and mail the case document to various administrators of state prison depts: https://www.lieffcabraser.com/pdf/document-50.pdf
Read this FAQ to better understand how to get stimulus checks to currently incarcerated people in the US: https://www.lieffcabraser.com/cares-act-relief/
Even faxing a few of the first pages of those documents to state DOC admin is a great way to agitate and call attention to this: https://twitter.com/studyabolition/status/1313116626393468928
The Pennsylvania Dept of Corrections is threatening to punish any prisoners who are filing for their stimulus checks. Fuck this bullshit.
"Now that it has been decided that prisoners can get the money, we need them to announce a correction, distribute the 1040 form, and help get this cash on people's books."

found out that my JPay messages about the CARES Act were being blocked
but now i found out they're being printed out and distributed to my friends who are incarcerated after a day of harassing prison officials at the state and individ. prison levels
seriously, fuck prisons and cages and doubly fuck the people who maintain them
@mooncake whoa thanks for the reminder. i’m going to try to file on behalf of someone and i was worried we’d be cutting it close.
