Hello, I think that Ms. Reynolds has a very compelling story and will continue to strive to help the women that need her.

Lack of access to healthy food and proper healthcare while incarcerated is a serious issue. It's great that people like Ms. Reynolds have taken it upon themselves to organize around these issues, yet there is much to be done to ameliorate the harm done to peoples health and lives by the prison system.

"Fully 32 percent of women in custody are African American." Really glad to see these statistics being discussed, and that the valuable work of an organization like WORTH is being highlighted here.

Thank you posting this story! I have only been familiar with WORTH for a short time, but their work and leaders have been an inspiration. I look forward to seeing more coverage in the future of the vital and transformative work that so many community-based organizations do to support health and healing in their community in the context of issues like homelessness, incarceration, and militarism.

This is really a great article. I'd like to see a lot more pieces on POZ about prison issues and HIV.

WORTH does such amazing important work. I'm glad to see their words and work recognized. I hope that readers will begin to see that incarceration is linked to so many issues that we on the outside face and begin to see that we need to recognize and address it as well.
