Our Present Staff
Today, San Quentin News employs a staff of 12-15 incarcerated men, aided by 7 professional advisers and a handful of volunteers who work to produce the newspaper. Printing is done off-site by Marin Sun Printing and transported to the prison where San Quentin News staff prepares and distributes monthly issues to approximately 4,000 incarcerated men at San Quentin as well as to prison staff, volunteers and visitors. San Quentin News staff also ships 18,000 copies of the newspaper to all 35 California prisons and to local communities. Thanks in large part to a substantial donation from the Columbia Foundation in 2013, San Quentin News was able to meet its short-term goal of increasing circulation to its current levels.
Whats in Our Future
With a recent grant from the Reva and David Logan Foundation —and with your support—our long-range goal is to deliver a monthly issue of the San Quentin News to every prisoner in the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (nearly 120,000 in total). To give a donation, select the “support us” option. All donations are used to cover the expenses of producing and distributing the San Quentin News. Thank you for your support.
