First I want to thank you!!! You and others from IOA helped my brother, whom I have not seen in 2 years, break through the “red tape” of an out-of-town visitation. I feel it is one-sided and unfair, because it’s only allowed once a year. I feel every six months would be more fair. When he told me what you all did, my heart was touched…Thanks for your help!!
At a Friday protest against video visitation, demonstrators accompanied the writer’s brother into the jail after he was initially denied a special, out-of-town visit. With a group of folks behind him refusing to take no for an answer, the man and his son were able to visit his brother for the first time in two years.
