Prison is a f**ed up place to be. And queer/trans communities are disproportionately criminalized. And making a real life connection based in friendship, support and solidarity with someone behind bars is one of the most important ways to fight the prison and criminalization systems, which are *designed* to isolate folks from their families and communities.
I know it’s short notice, but we’re trying to get monthly letterwriting nights going again by exploring new venues for the next few months.
We will be having our January letter writing night this Thursday 1/9/14 from 6-7:30 at the Starry Plough in South Berkeley. (here’s the facebook event link)
Please stop by anytime to pick up your letter, write a letter, pick out a new penpal, bring a friend, share an idea or have a bite!!
