Now is the time for all good people to come to the aid of those who are in need. Visions for Prisons needs your help for the following project:

Peace in Prison 2000

Enlisting prisoners and prisons to cooperate in ONE DAY OF PEACE in every prison throughout the world. No fights, no stabbings, no murders, no incidents of any kind, one dayJanuary 1st, 2000. Goals and Results:

1. To raise the awareness of every thinking being that prisoners are more than their crimes and that they deserve our attention and therefore our resources, which will lead them towards healing their attitudes about themselves, their spirits, their communities, their planet and their relationships with God.

2. To lead prisoners on a quest for a better life by creating a day, and a future habit, of reflection on peace. And, by asking them to participate from their cells, in a world- changing event, feel reconnected to their 'outside' community.

3. To open the doors in the minds of prison administrators, correctional personnel and others that PEACE IS POSSIBLE. "If we can do it in here-you can do it out there."

4. To place media attention on this positive story.

5. To raise the energy of prisons from "hell" to "HOLY GROUND".

6. To heal the separation.

7. To create a 'critical mass' experiment towards experiencing a peaceful planet.
