Join us every Wednesday night to support political prisoners from different struggles and build resistance against Skanska USA from building an underground animal laboratory at University of Washington.

The Anarchist Black Cross (ABC) is an organization committed to providing support and solidarity for political prisoners through a variety of methods such as:
-Penpals & letter writing to build friendships and resist the dehumanization process that the industrial prison complex aims to implement.
-Building alliances with the communities and the movements the prisoners participated in prior to their incarceration. Through building these coalitions, we continue to ensure that imprisoned comrades are not forgotten by their movements or our own.
-Raising funds for prisoners left with no financial support to pay for phone calls or postage stamps to communicate with their families, friends and supporters; not enough money to pay for a news subscription or buy books; no funds to get proper footwear or summer/winter clothing. If we call these prisoners our comrades, we can not allow this to continue. And we don’t.

Do you have zero experience writing to, or supporting a political prisoner? No problem. We will provide all the letter writing materials and give you all the info you need to get started.

Through coalition building, the Austin chapter of the Anarchist Black Cross is teaming up with the No New Animal Lab campaign to stop the construction of a lab on the University of Washington. With a diverse variety of tactics such as call-ins, letter writing, local protests across the nation and other forms direct action, we aim to demonstrate how powerful we can truly be in defiance of widespread forms of oppression. We will talk about this campaign and provide a list of addresses to write to.
