Being in prison during the holidays would be rough for anyone–especially in those prisons that seem to go out of their way to make inmates’ lives miserable–but the victims of sexual assault in prison have an especially hard time. One kind thing you can do for them, aside from advocating for prison reform, is to send these people a brief message of hope and encouragement. That’s what the Words of Hope program does. The messages are the length of a tweet, but yours might help someone feel less alone and scared. So take a couple of minutes, go to Words of Hope, and send a supportive message. Thanks.
