Angola State Prison, Louisiana

The Universal Order of Jah Rastafarian Healing Center was founded at the Angola State Prison in Louisiana. Inmates in the Center have no access to the Internet, and are looking for resources like books, music and DVDs to fortify the Center.

The inmates at the Center are also seeking spiritual advisers, educators, and groups that are willing to come into the prison and teach and help build the Rastafari community there.

Please read the Rastafarian Healing Center Letter (PDF) that Jahworks.org received from inmate and Center coordinator, Michael “Jah Lion” Birklett.

Louisiana State Penitentiary is the largest maximum security prison in the United States with an inmate population of 5,108, and a workforce of roughly 1800. The prison is located approximately 59 miles northwest of Baton Rouge on 18,000 acres of farm land in the south, and is still run as a working farm by the inmates.

Of Angola’s inmates, 86% are violent offenders. Seventy-four percent (74%) of the inmate population is serving a life sentence and will never be released from prison.

If you are able to give your time, knowledge, books, music, or DVDs, please mail everything via mail to:
