Daughters is a new magazine edited by Sarita Miller in collaboration with Let’s Get Free. The first issue was published in December of 2020. This page contains highlights from the magazine and links to download each issue as a PDF.
Daughters is a faith-based, political publication founded by Sarita Miller (SCI Muncy) that aims to illuminate issues and perspectives, specifically those of women, pertaining to the crisis of mass incarceration in this country. A platform for us and by us, Daughters will be a pathway to the expression of our fears, our struggles, our pain and our needs. Although for now we are confined, our spirits and voices soar free.
In 2021 we published two issues of Daughter’s and two issues of the Let’s Get Free newsletter magazine and decided it would make better sense to merge the two. The next issue – Spring of 2022 is scheduled to be out in May and is themed around domestic violence and will be our first officially united publication 💗

I’ve witnessed more women than I choose to admit suffer in prison from lack of adequate healthcare.-Sarita Miller, “Menopause: the Nemesis of Eve”
I believe any prison sentence that eliminates the hope of one day being released should be considered cruel. Unfortunately, in Pennsylvania, it is not all that unusual.– Heather Lavelle, “Unintended Consequences”
Training with staff is necessary to deal with the high level of women dealing with mental health issues and drug addiction. There should be stages of levels of care in dealing with residents.– Interview with Nahesa Gray
