Penpals play a critical role in the lives of many death row inmates, as they did in Juan’s life. They help the death row inmates maintain hope and keep their spirits up under conditions

that so often strip death row inmates of all hope and destroy their will to live. If you are interested in writing to a death row inmate, please visit www.ccadp.org.
