Phone Zap: Franklin County Detention Center

Franklin County Detention Center – Kansas

Phone Zap: November 27th & Beyond



Detainees housed in the women’s section of the Franklin County Detention Center are being denied undergarments and feminine hygiene products. Detainees face public ridicule when asking for these necessary items. Nobody should have to jump through hoops, face illness, or be humiliated because they cannot easily or privately access pads or tampons. Requiring inmates to pay for these items is nothing short of denying access to basic necessities to those inmates that cannot afford them. The women in your jail should be afforded some basic human dignity and should not be put in a position in which their health is jeopardized.

Members of the IWW have created the IWOC, the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee, which functions as a liaison for prisoners to organize each other, unionize, and build solid bridges between prisoners on the inside and fellow workers on the outside. Prison is a setup, a big business, there to make money off the People. Neither the setup, nor the slavery inside of prisons can be combated without the conscious participation of prisoners and the working class on the outside through mutual aid, solidarity, and the building of working relationships that transcend prison walls and the politics of mass incarceration. The IWOC has been actively reaching out to prisoners while at the same time prisoners have been reaching out to the IWW for representation and assistance in building a prisoners union. The IWOC has taken up the cause and is helping prisoners in every facility organize and build a union branch for themselves, which will together form a powerful IWW Industrial Union.
