Greetings to all my brothers/sisters supporting us in and out. I am founder and president of the 1st Five Grieving Committee of the Durham Co. Jail. First, we would like to let you know how much we love you for helping us. There has been a lot of changes here; a lot of small things have improved. We also noticed that there is a lot of street Sheriff Officers coming in to supervise and watch us, as if something big is about to happen, like our inside protest. That means the fliers you are handing out and the things you are doing is working. I feel that those letters I sent you are really “rattling some cages” and shaking up some people.
You should see some of the inspections that’s going on in here. I’m so proud of you guys but we need a lot more help from the outside. I suggest we go on an information campaign, meaning we need to flood the jail with flyers. I also urge you to send hundreds of flyers to all the inmates and to all that writes Feedback on a regular basis. One letter here and there is just not getting it. To pass one letter around to one inmate just don’t make no sense. We know this is hard work, we believe in the end, it will pay off and we love you for doing it.
