Welcome to iExpress
- Welcome to iExpress, the world’s first full online avenue of expression for people in prisons and hospitals, bringing them into the digital world since 2013.
- iExpress presents a personal webpage, which allows people in prisons and hospitals to make a personal statement that addresses their current feelings and attitudes. It is also a stable address for contact.
- The iExpress email service allows people in prisons and hospitals to send and receive emails from family or the general community. It doesn’t require a webpage.
- iExpress provides a platform for restorative justice and reconciliation with the community. It is a positive community building project. It provides the chance to say sorry and present yourself, as well as reply. It is supported by victims’ organisations.
- The Universal Declaration of Human Rights protects the rights of expression and personal opinion under articles 2, 3, 12, 18, 19, 22 and 27.
- iExpress complies with Commonwealth and State legislation, also under s 51(v) of the Australian Constitution, which relates to communication powers. Legal analysis is accessed here.
- Victorian challenge to iExpress’s existence provides an opportunity to secure it. Their letter is here. Our response is here. See media coverage here. It will remain a responsible refuge for all people in custody nationally and internationally. It cannot be removed.
