The Michigan Asatru Inmate Network is an inititive of the Odinsvin Kindred to help our incarcerated Brothers and Sisters secure their rights, establish contact with free Odinists, and assist them when they are freed from custody.
It is our goal to make sure the state understands what it means to be an Odinist and what provisions that the state must make for the practice of the religion. We are currently working on a book that will be professionally published and sent to every prison Chaplain in the state, officials within the Michigan Department of Corrections (MDOC) and any incarcerated Brother or Sister that requests one.
We understand that some inmates do not have outside financial support and if they have jobs within the prison they may make as little as 30 cents a day. For this reason we also have our Havamal project. The project provides a copy of the Havamal to any inmate who requests one (funds permitting). We would love to be able to provide the full Edda but costs prohibit it and as such we feel that the Havamal is the one book that an Odinist should not be without.
We are currently in the process of getting one Odinist Religious volunteer reapproved by the MDOC as the term of the status expired and though we sent in the paperwork for renewal they are taking their sweet time.
Both the book and Havamal projects continue to stretch the funds we have available so please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to donate to these worthwhile projects.
