“In Louisiana, black women were put in cells with male prisoners and some became pregnant. In 1848, legislators passed a new law declaring that all children born in the penitentiary of African American parents serving life sentences would be property of the state. The women would raise the kids until the age of ten, at which point the penitentiary would place an ad in the newspaper. Thirty days later, the children would be auctioned off on the courthouse steps 'cash on delivery.' The proceeds were used to fund schools for white children. . . many of [the black children] were purchased by prison officials.” Source: American Prison: A Reporter's Undercover Journey into the Business of Punishment by Shane Bauer

It’s Prisons Week! Monday: for those who are prisoners. Inside a cell, the temptation is to give up, to abandon hope and just wait for release. It requires courage and boldness for any one of us to acknowledge wrongdoing and seek forgiveness. #prison#forgiveness#have#faith#boldlygo Find our more on our website, search ‘prisons week’.
Noted prison reform researcher Michelle Alexander once estimated that anywhere between 3% to 15% of inmates in prison are actually innocent of their charges. The pleas of the innocent, however, are drowned out by the masses. And it's kind of annoying. #warehousefables#comics#webcomic#prison www.facebook.com/warehousefables
"Continue to remember those in #prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering." (Hebrews 13:3)
Despite the tragic reasons that got them there, many born-again redeemed brothers and sisters will spend many years (some for life) isolated behind prison walls feeling unloved and forgotten by the world.
God has opened the doors in many institutions to fulfill this Biblical command using #KairosPrisonMinistry
#Kairos also has a #KairosOutside#ministry serving women and children effected by the impacts of #incarceration as well as a Juvenile offender #prisonministry called #KairosTorch .

Those who still didn't see this movie (at least 10 times) should do it immediately, cause life is too short and you may lack time to see it a few hundred times. And those who saw it and did not like it... nope, that kind does not exist, at least for me. The one and only - Blues Brothers. There wasn't anything like this before or after this gem, not even close. This movie has everything - prison, drama, action, awesome car chases, one of the most exciting love stories ever shown on big screen, comedy, mass shooters, flamethrowers and explosions. And on top of that, it has legendary casting - Carrie Fisher, Henry Gibson, John Candy, Twiggy, Frank Oz (Yoda), even Steven Spielberg - and without competition, THE VERY BEST SOUNDTRACK IN HISTORY. John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd are heavily supported by James Brown, Cab Calloway, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Steve Cropper, Matt Murphy, Chaka Khan, John Lee Hooker. For this movie 10/10 simply isn't enough.
10/10 for the movie

This was a great event and I was happy to speak to inmates and staff at WA State Corrections Pride event for LGBTQ inmates and allies. We have come along way that they even allow this event now to support LGBTQ inmates. I have spoke in prisons now in 4 countries, these folks need support just like the rest of us. Many of them come from very sad and rough family situations like I did. By the grace of finding the martial arts and good people in my life I went another way, but I have tons of compassion.
This part if from the Washington Department of Corrections.
The Unity Group, an LGBTQI-focused group for incarcerated individuals, at the Monroe Correctional Complex hosted their annual Pride Event. The event featured remarkable speakers and performers.
The theme was ‘Pride Beyond Borders” which coincided with the Seattle Pride theme. The facility was honored by having guests from different organizations and advocates for the LGBTQI community, such as Social Scope Media, Monica Beverly Hillz from RuPaul's Drag Race, Candice Marie Drag Queen from Kansas City, board of directors members from Seattle Pride, Monisha Harrell from Equal Rights Washington, and James “Jim” Ritter from Seattle Police Department.
There was a question and answer session focused on education. A representative from the non-profit Gender Justice League spoke about the work her organization does for the advancement of transgender rights. She also shared that outreach to incarcerated individuals is a priority for her organization.
Another speaker was Mac Scotty McGregor, a transgender man who is an accomplished martial artist, and who now advocates for the LGBTQ community in Seattle. He discussed his experiences facing challenges in the sporting world based on his gender identity, and he shared what it was like as the first transgender individual who ran for the Seattle City Council.
Education was presented in an engaging way to all who attended. Seattle PrideFest
