Update: As of late 3/30, Wayland has been released from solitary confinement. He is still being charged with organizing (which is a "crime" in prison) and has been hit with two disciplinary reports for which he may face consequences. Please fill out our contact form to get on our emergency mailing list if there is further retaliation. Wayland may be out of solitary, but the fight isn't over. Please continue to send him love while he heals from his ordeal.
Update from our beloved friend and activist Wayland Coleman!
Wayland has asked for notes of encouragement as he continues the fight for water justice and human rights in Massachusetts prisons.
He has asked specifically for all concerned people in solidarity with his struggle, to send water related stories, memories, and jokes to help him keep his spirits up while he is in solitary confinement.
