Lewisburg Prison Project collaborated with the community and local universities to write holiday cards to inmates. LPP Outreach Coordinator Alex Skitolsky addressed the Federal rules and regulations that allowed for this event to take place. In the process, students and local residents were reminded of the humanity of the forgotten prison population.
After receiving a complaint from an inmate at USP Lewisburg regarding racially degrading remarks heard on the Bucknell University radio station, the Lewisburg Prison Project alerted Bucknell administration. Action was quickly taken and the three students responsible for these racial slurs were expelled upon the conclusion of the university’s investigation.
