I have committed crimes,but this...
Who are we ?
The government want to spend the least amount of money on prisoners ,so they would give prisoners dirty water which caused I'll health ,at this time 25% of prisoners died in prisoners each year.The prisoners also were prohibited for talking to each other and if the guards or security would find out the prisoners would be hardly punished.Also family were allowed to visit only twice a year but this happened after 1815.
With this harsh stuff going in prisoners,which brings us to Zebulon Brockway the first person whom his idea was not to punish them but to give them advice to help them become better people. Collectively these ideas are called Zebulon Brockway's "New Penology".Which brings me to what I want to tell you that we should help this people we all know they are criminals ,but what if that is your mom or dad in prison would you like to live in those conditions.Knowing that you go to jail and have a risk of being killed or died of a disease which you have the power to prevent right now.We have to put our self in those criminals shoes and think and feel on how they are suffering and yes we know that maybe they should thought of what they were going to do twice but hey nobody is perfect and we all make mistakes just in different ways.So what I am offering you today to join the progressives ,our purposes are not put Zebulon Brockway's ideas into action.
Why donate ?
How are we doing this ?
Our plans for a change
So your probably wondering where can I donate money or why should I donate money.Honesly you should donate your money to Elima Reformation to help create a jail that will have crimals living in better conditions but also to help keep educators coming to help crimals with special classes to help them be a better person.What we have so far is people in our reformation talking to educators to join us and spread the word about how crimals live and how they can change so when they come out they are a better person themselves.

Another important person
Dorothea Did fought for the improvement of Massachttes and New Jersey prisons. She found out the necessity of prison reform when she went to the East Cambridge Jail with her Sunday school. The crimals were living in inhumane conditions, they lived in unsanitary and unheated cells. Dorothea Dix requested government help in her attempts to reform prisons and help the mentally ill. In 1835 Dix asked for the government to lend 12 millions acres of land to establish institutions to help the insane and vision, hearing, and speech impaired. This was vetoed by the president, Franklin Pierce. She later raised money herself to establish over 50 hospitals, one of them was the Trenton State Hospital in New Jersey.
