This week, we hear from Michelle Freeman, who describes the horrifying conditions in which her husband, Vernell Freeman, is being held in Miami Correctional Facility, here in Indiana. Speaking on behalf of her partner, Michelle tells Kite Line about the repeated incidents of medical neglect and retaliatory violence Vernell has been subjected to within the prison. We also have updates on the situation of west coast prisoners, who are suffering from their own crises of medical and housing neglect amid the wildfires and evacuations in Oregon and elsewhere.

You can see more about the call-in campaign for Vernell here.
