Amicus' Inside Change Blog

Inside Change
is a blog created by Amicus for volunteers, donors, ex-offenders, social workers, educators, law enforcement officers, parents and anyone whose life touches that of an inmate, ex-offender or juvenile in trouble.

You’ll find four things there:

  • Amicus and other experts talking about issues of the moment related to building better lives for those currently or formerly incarcerated

  • Links and commentary on breaking news connected to Amicus’ work, and opportunities to support and engage more deeply in that work

  • Stories from the field including conversations and interviews with donors and volunteers, as well as the voices of inmates sharing their stories or views

  • Posts and short features on the edge of topics—subjects some might consider unrelated to Amicus—to broaden our reach, spark conversations and as always, elicit your comments

For more information about Amicus and their work helping inmates, ex-offenders and juveniles build better lives and stronger communities, go to
