Please join Red Light Reader, Support Ho(s)e, and Survived and Punished NY for a joint letter writing event!
Our goal for this public event is to send cards to all of our incarcerated contacts and share knowledge across our organizations. Folks with incarcerated loved ones are more than welcome to join us and write to anyone, regardless of their or your affiliation with RLR, SxHx, or S&P.
The event will begin with a grounding and knowledge share, followed by letter writing. Folks can come and go as they feel comfortable to do so.
We will provide snacks, letter writing supplies, and good vibes! Additional donations of food, stamps, cards and envelopes, etc. are always welcome, but no financial or material contribution is required to attend this free event.
We look forward to seeing many of you there, and on many other occasions to come, as we continue to strengthen our relationships with survivors of incarceration and all forms of state violence.
