Venerable Chodron does prison work in the US. Her website contains many articles detailing this work.
Sravasti Abbey offers books on Buddhism by Ven. Chodron and other Buddhist teachers to inmates and prison libraries free of charge. Tapes and CDs with guided Buddhist medtiations and teachings are also available.

Ven. Chodron has visited about 30 prisons in the US, and several in Singapore and Mexico. She has given refuge and precepts in person and by teleconference to nearly a dozen prisoners over the past years. Other monastics and lay volunteers from the Abbey visited four other prisons in 2009, and the monk at the Abbey gave refuge to an inmate in Oklahoma who had corresponded for many years.
