Hello everyone. My name is Eliza Farnham and next to me is Dorothea Dix and we are here to talk about the Prision Reform. This was the time that us and other leaders tried to make better conditions for prisons.
We and others wanted to do this because prisons were overflowing with people (including kids), prisoners were treated harshly, they were unsanitary, and many more.
Our goal of the Prison Reform was to make better conditions in prisons.
I NEED TO GET OUT OF HERE!!!!
As we were trying our hardest to improve prisons, I decided to make a bill which was later vetoed by the President. They don't know nothing about Prisons!!!
We decided to veto Dorothea's Bill!
That's not the only problem we had doing this. Way before we started this movement. No one even knew about the Prisons!!!
THEY NEED TO CHANGE THIS PRISON!!!!
In addition, people thought that prisoners should still have rights. Also, I later came up with the idea of rehabilitation for the U.S. Overall, we are happy that prisons have now changed.
In the end, people finally took consideration of changing the conditions of prisons. Prisons now had education and therapy classes, kids were sent in Juvenile systems,etc
