Included below is a letter from Mr. Saengchanh, a fellow detainee at MSOP in Minnesota.

“Mr. Saengchanh’s letter illustrates the injustice of detaining someone who has serious language barriers. He cannot study law as easily as an English speaking person can. He cannot communicate with his therapist as effectively either. There are some random words in English and Laotian. This is normal for Mr. Saengchanh, who is always trying to learn English, yet always feels that it’s never enough. The letter also illustrates Mr. Saengchanh’s respect for his roommate, “John” and advocates for him lovingly.” – Daniel A. Wilson

    Your visions for a just future — abolish pre-crime preventative detention laws, stop dehumanizing labels, and realign values of restoration, are fundamental. Check out I developed and taught a 46 hour Restorative Justice Mediation training for families, certified by the supreme court. I gave away the class to 24 participants — judges, lawyers, therapists, mediators, restorative practitioners, family members, and consumers, a process of no court. We need to gather funds so no person ever has to pay for restorative services, or for learning our dialogue process. 651-783-5878 family innocence.
