James Robertson, a member of our Meeting, visits prisoners at the Federal Correctional Complex in Lompoc under the auspicious of the organization Prisoner Visitation Support (PVS) www.prisonervisitation.org. Although PVS is not a religious program the organization has Quaker ties and its offices are a part of AFSC in Philadelphia.
People in this program are “volunteers” with the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP). As such, visitors must be approved by, and follow the regulations, of both PVS and BOP. Volunteers generally visit the same prisoners once a month spending approximately one hour with each of them. If you are interested in this program, please contact James by calling SB Lcal area code + 967-7283 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
