Death Row Support Project

Become a Pen Pal

Here's how it works:

  1. You decide you would like to make a commitment to write to someone on death row at least once each month for one year.
  2. You sign up using the online form, or send us your name, address, age, and religious affiliation (if any).
  3. We send you a letter from someone on death row who has requested a pen pal,* along with guidelines for writing.
  4. You write and mail a letter to the person on death row.
  5. If you have questions or concerns that are not addressed in the frequently asked questions page, please contact us.

*If we do not have current requests from prisoners, we will send you a randomly selected name of someone who does not already have a pen pal through DRSP.

It presently takes one month to match volunteers to prisoners.
