The event creator says
Please join the first meeting of a new initiative: LGBTQ Prisoner Pen-Pals Group

Members of all of our communities are being incarcerated at staggering rates. The violence being enacted on our bodies and minds is a reality. Prisons are purposefully located outside of major metropolitan areas with the hope that the public will forget about the 2.5 million people currently incarcerated. The numbers are alarming and the atrocities that go unchecked are shameful. What can we do?

One small step can make a huge difference!
Becoming a pen-pal is an important way to show support for prisoners. In addition to breaking the isolation felt (and enforced by the PIC), if a prisoner receives letters it sends a message to prison staff that this person has support on the outside.

To learn more and share your thoughts please join our first meeting:

Date: THURSDAY, APRIL 23, 2015
Place: Q Center - 4115 N Mississippi Ave, Portland, 97217
Time: 7-9pm

This meeting is open to anyone interested in lending support to LGBTQ prisoners.
The Q Center is funded by our donations and no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Thank you,
Lorenzo T.
