The Amplifier

The Amplifier (EJP student newsletter)

Students in the Education Justice Project produce a monthly newsletter, The Amplifier, in the computer lab at Danville Correctional Center.

  • Any EJP student can submit an article.
  • EJP students are also the editorial staff for the newsletter.
  • Through The Amplifier, EJP students help each other plug into news that informs and encourages.

Stories submitted include interviews of EJP members, commentary on issues of general interest, accounts of of EJP programs, book reviews, puzzlers, chess plays, cartoons, and a calendar of EJP programs at Danville Correctional Center. The Amplifier coordinator is Cope Cumpston.
