Thousand Kites is excited to offer community radio stations and individuals the 9th annual national radio program Calls from Home. The program features phone calls from mothers and children, brothers and grandparents, sharing the intimate power of families speaking directly to their incarcerated loved ones. Calls from Home, produced in the coalfields of central Appalachia, reaches a national network of prisoners, their loved ones and public listeners through community radio in an effort to educate the public about the criminal justice system.

GET INVOLVED with our national radio broadcast for prisoners: CALLS FROM HOME. This year there are 5 ways you can participate!

1) Help spread the word in your community about when and how to call in
2) Contact your local community radio station and ask them to broadcast CALLS FROM HOME
3) Send your shout-out to your friend or family member inside
4) Host a CALLS FROM HOME House Party and listen to the 10-minute Special Broadcast
5) If you're local in Whitesburg, stop by and help us mail postcards!

Check out the CALLS FROM HOME event page to learn more details about these 5 steps!

How does the criminal justice system affect your community? Maybe you have been incarcerated or have a loved one who has been incarcerated. Maybe you work inside a prison. Maybe you're just concerned about the growing prison population in the United States. What do you want the public to know about your experience? What story do you have to share?

Be part of the dialogue.
Call toll-free 877-518-0606.
Share your story today.
