Supporting Criminal Justice Reform

Tocsin Magazine is a dedicated advocate for incarcerated men and women across the country. Inmates from New York to California contact our publication daily. Many are seeking support and/or guidance to legal representation.


Our goal is to provide this information through our social justice publication. Which features interviews with legal professionals and organizations like the Innocence Project and InterNational Prison’s Family Conference, along with several others. They provide us with steps inmates should take on various issues as well as other information that affects families and individuals who suffer from an unjust society.


We also provide this information in response to letters we receive and the company’s website. We are not attorneys and cannot provide legal advice, however we may be able to direct you to the appropriate individuals.


If you or your loved one is suffering behind bars, please contact us.

R.E.A.C.H Initiative

Tocsin Magazine Announces "Reach Initiative" To Help Inmates Connect With Family and Society.


Tocsin Magazine announces  "Reach Initiative", a program designed to help inmates connect with resources in their communities. 


Through Reach Initiative, inmates will be able to access information regarding resources, such as legal assistance, mentorship programs, counseling services, reentry programs and much more.


As of March 30, 2019, Federal Bureau of Prisons release stats of the current inmate population. Roughly 49% are there for nonviolent crimes.


Unfortunately, once released, many people also face a greater chance of returning to prison. According to National Institute of Justice within three years of release, about two-thirds (67.8 percent) of released prisoners were rearrested. Within five years of release, about three-quarters (76.6 percent) of released prisoners were rearrested. 



Nonprofit Organizations

We are requesting all organizations specifically designed to assist inmates contact to be added to the inmate resources list.
