Pen Pals Needed

TX Death Row prisoners in need of pen pals:

We recommend you research any inmate and their charges to make sure you are comfortable before deciding to write them, and that you always be clear about what you are comfortable doing and your expectations of the relationship. While we do not intend to become a pen pal service, we do encourage pen pal relationships. This page lists inmates who are actively seeking pen pals, friends, and sometimes love. Reaching out to an incarcerated person can be a positive, life changing experience for both people involved. Please contact us if you plan to become a pen  pal to one of these prisoners or for any other information you may want or need to know. Also see, Things to Know Before you Write.
