Links Not Chains

Links Not Chains

Every year, tens of thousands of our clients, brothers, fathers, mothers, sisters cousins and friends are locked up in the New York State prison system. They are shut away behind bars and stripped of their freedoms, opinions, and rights as human beings. Links Not Chains was created to give voice to those who much of our society wants to ignore, wants to forget, wants to keep silent.

Links Not Chains is a blog is dedicated to the creative expression of Bronx Defenders clients who are currently incarcerated. Through this blog, which is maintained and updated by Bronx Defenders staff and interns, clients are able to share their stories, poems, thoughts, or simply send out a message of thanks to those who have been supporting them.
