Prison Free Press (PFP) is a Not-for-Profit Organization that publishes two free quarterly magazines by and for prisoners, ex-prisoners, and their loved ones in Canada.

These publications are dedicated to providing a space for those in prisons and their supporters to communicate with each other and the broader public about the issues and experiences prisoners face through art, poetry, stories, news, support resources, health and harm reduction information.

We are now in our 4th year of production and very pleased with how this vital project is going.

But sadly, Prison Free Press (PFP) has exhausted all personal savings & has absolutely no Funding sources at all. We are forced to suspend the Print Edition of this important Publishing project in Spring 2019.
Thank you to all of our dear Supporters & to the Supported!
PFP will certainly continue to publish online for Supporters to View/ Print/ Send to family/ friends inside because loved ones in prison do not have internet access & only a printed copy has any real connection to the outside.
For sure, we will keep trying for Funding to sustain this Project & get these Print Editions going inside again!
