The survey asked what needed to change and how we might support
that change. Participant recommendations ranged from proposals for
survival-based reform inside prisons to calls for institutional
accountability and community organizing. People suggested immediate
solutions for increasing individuals' chances of survival in prison and
called attention to the need for greater inside/outside organizing
efforts. Some participants specifically named the complacency of LGBT
political organizations, whose agendas often exclude prison issues.
These responses remind those of us on the outside that the dignity and
self-determination of incarcerated people must be central to our
organizing and not forgotten behind prison walls.
