HIV/AIDS in Prison Project closes February 13; reopens as part of California Prison Focus

That’s right folks. Despite their best efforts, they were unable to obtain foundation funding to continue our project at Catholic Charities of the East Bay. The good news is they will continue the work on a volunteer, part-time basis as part of California Prison Focus. It is an organization dedicated to fighting the repressive and brutal security housing unit (lockdown) conditions faced by so many prisoners around the state. CPF is adding a special committee on HIV in prison issues.
