Virginia Department of Corrections In Its Operation Unlawful Treatment of Reentry Prisoners At Virginia's Greensville Correctional Center

We at "Virginia Prisons Accountability Committee" have received the following alarming letter from concerned families of prisoners  At Greensville Correctional Center. We have been alerted officials there are not doing their jobs and denying guys their earned good time, overriding their security levels thus keeping them incarcerated longer than they should be. VADOC headquarters in Richmond (atmore) is also not listening to the families when they call the court legal services unit and the correspondence department is not responding to inmate requests, assistance etc. my husband should’ve been home last month and they’re denying him his review and all the things aforementioned. 
We are asking our followers and members to share this post as a step in the process by exposing VADOC violations at Virginia's Greensville Correctional Center. 

Thank you

Appalling Conditions at Virginia's Danville City Jail Needs Action Immediately

I am wondering if you can help me out by letting me know who I need to contact about the conditions at the Danville City Jail.

They are making the inmates sit in their underwear both female and male inmates and this process is taking 5 to 6 hours each time they come to ask the inmates if they want a new jumper.  Also, they are not turning the heat on but maybe once a day and so the inmates are cold as well and many of them don't have underclothing because the jail doesn't provide it for them.  The food amounts that they used to get are being cut in half as well, many of the inmates are not receiving their commissary as well because they keep telling them that there is a mix up of their funds even though the inmates were handed a receipt showing that money was put on their accounts.  They are being denied their religious rights as well, many are not being allowed to go to the bible studies or even able to see the Chaplin when they ask to see him.  There are several of them that don't have hot water in their cells and many that barely even have any cold water.  

If you could point me in the right direction as to who I need to express my concerns to that would be very much appreciated.
