Join Flying Over Walls (SF Bay Area Black & Pink) at our annual holiday card writing event! The holidays can be a challenging and lonely time when you’re locked up and away from loved ones, so we’ll be decorating and sending holiday cards to members – with a goal of sending cards to 100 folks!! We need your help!
This will be one of at least 100+ parties happening across the globe to make sure every LGBTQ+ incarcerated member of Black & Pink gets a holiday card and knows that they are loved and not forgotten.
Somar Bar will graciously donate up to 15% of bar sales between 6-8pm, so please stop by, have a drink, and decorate a card! If you don’t plan on drinking, please bring a few dollars to help us raise enough to cover postage. Any money raised beyond the cost of supplies will be used to support wages for formerly incarcerated members of Black & Pink, bail funds, re-entry support and other local & national Black & Pink funds.
We will have all the supplies, info on ways to get more involved in the movement to abolish prisons, and copies of the recently released report: Coming Out of Concrete Closets: A Report on Black & Pink’s National LGBTQ Prisoner Survey (http://www.blackandpink.org/survey/)
If you would like to find out more and/or host your own card-making party this year, please fill out this registration form.
