Question Support Lapel Pins~would you wear one if your support group offered one?

I belong to a NY and a FL support group. We would like to know if there is national support for a standardized pin we could wear (male or female) from any state or country that would show our support for our loved ones who are incarcerated. FL has previously used double ribbon-one black and one white sewn to a small safety pin - just like the AIDs and breast cancer pins first appeared. Is there any support out there for this? Are you already doing something like this? If so - can you tell us what?

I would definately show my support for prison reform and for my loved one if I was able to have a pin like that.
I like the pin idea. The idea of "livestrong" style bracelets has come up on PTO before, but we don't have any merchandise here.
The group I belong to in NY (PFNY) does not offer a pin like that, to my knowledge, but I would purchase one if they ever decided to make them up.

Thanks for all your replies. The concensus in FL NY and on PTO is YES. I'll get back to you on the specifics so that they are the same all over the country. We can make our own. It's how the red AIDS ribbon and the pink Breast Cancer ribbon started at the grass roots. Some are concerned if they can wear them on a visit and we'll ask DOC to find out.

Nooo I would NOT wear one! He gets enough support with letters, calls and visits. Plus I am completely faithful too. I'll wear mine inside, in my heart. Where it has been since he's been locked up.
