Dear Supportors and Fellow Movement Changers,

Join our campaign to ask the Bureau of Prisons to allow people to hold hands at visitations in federal prisons!

Research repeatedly illustrates the importance of human touch—whether between family
members, romantic partners, or friends—in emotional bonding, communication, trust, comfort,
and mental and physical health. 

Join Building Wings in asking the BOP to change its visiting regulations to provide for holding

hands during visits in minimum, low, and medium security prisons.
