    We invite participation from justice organizations focusing on the prison crisis to participate in the People’s Music Network Song of the Month. April 2014 will be focused on prisons. We need 1) organizers interested in using the songs that are submitted in the course of their organizing work 2) organizational leaders willing to serve on a judging panel to choose the songs that are most effective in moving people toward activism and organizing around prison injustice. 3) connections with song-writers that are producing great music about prison injustice that should be heard more widely.
