Join Chicago Books to Women in Prison, Moms United and Read/Write for the 2nd annual Valentines Against Violence & Incarceration. We’ll write cards to incarcerated survivors and to the Cook County State’s Attorney and IL Governor in support of freedom for survivors who are pre-trial or seeking clemency. We’ll also be sending birthday cards to Alisha Walker, whose projected parole date is 2021, but who we hope will be home even sooner.
Writing materials (and instructions for first timers!) provided. We’ll also have some treats, but folks are welcome to bring something to share too.
We’ll be collecting toiletry donations for incarcerated people at Decatur prison, where prisoners are badly in need of shampoo, toothpaste, soap, deodorant, and pads.
