Josh's Support Team lettersforjosh@shac7.com

This is an incredibly difficult time for Josh and his co-defendants. Please help them out!

The SHAC7's only link to the outside world is you- so please get to writing! Tell them about what's going on in the real world, what you did today, that vacation you just got back from, or a movie you plan to see this weekend. They want to hear about it all!! Please just try not to include depressing things or advice about this prison experience (unless you have personal experience).

Josh just turned himself in yesterday (Nov.16), so he doesn't have access to phone calls or visits yet- so please write now and keep writing often!

Josh can be written to at:

Joshua Harper
29429-086
FCI Sheridan
Federal Correctional Institution
P.O. Box 5000
Sheridan, OR 97378

Don't forget to include your snail mail address if you'd like a reply. All correspondence is opened and read by authorities before it reaches prisoners, so please err on the side of caution if you're writing about anything sensitive, for Josh's sake. If you're unfamiliar with writing to prisoners please check out  http://www.spiritoffreedom.org.uk/resources/writing.html



Check out www.SHAC7.com for info about how to write Josh's co-defendants, and check www.JoshHarper.org and www.myspace.com/jharps often for updates about and communication from Josh.
