This month, in addition to letterwriting, our discussion will focus on our place and strategies in the larger movement, in light of an invitation we received to join a roundtable of LGBT2IQ prison penpal projects for the International Conference on Penal Abolition (ICOPA) on June 13-15 in Ottawa, Canada on Algonquin territory.
No matter which way you choose to go, this is a simple way to brighten someone’s day in prison. Prisons are very lonely, isolating, and disconnected places so any sort of bridge, supportive human contact from the outside world is a powerful method of solidarity & is greatly appreciated.
So come hang out with us!
As always, we’ll have some basic supplies, but feel free to bring pens, markers, paper, envelopes, watercolors, pencils, stamps or a small donation toward supplies. Please do NOT bring any stickers, glues, glitters or adhesives.
