James Ward

This is James Ward from Toledo Correctional Institution in Ohio. I’m making this speech concerning my project I’m tryna develop called Decarcerate Us, but that I’m really needing help.

It’s been a while since I made a speech bout what I’m trying to develop, mainly because I’ve been feeling discouraged. Trying to do all I can to find more help to get it put together has been difficult. Trying to get people to reach out has been hard, even from my own Facebook page.

It seems like nobody’s interested in even knowing more about what I’m trying to do or get involved, besides those in contact with me now. But I’m really in need of more help. Anybody that has time to communicate, cause I can’t do this all on my own.

There’s a few of us doing what we can, but we’re busy schedules. And I’m trying to reach all states, possibly countries. Anybody’s advice, ideas, or anybody that’s willing to get involved to help develop Decarcerate Us to message me on my Facebook page @freeJamesWard or contact me directly by email on

I need people’s ideas and advice. Someone I can work with to keep everybody else in the loop if I can’t get ahold of them, myself. I need a team to build this project to expose the real truth of treatment, you know, prisons by all means.

And I just wonder what do I really have to do in order to find that help, cause I really don’t know what else to do besides what I’m doing now. People could at least send comments to my page, give me some type of hope. My info for is James Ward A517461, Toledo Correctional Institution in Ohio.
