Join LRP and the Seattle/Tacoma chapter of Black & Pink as we write letters to incarcerated queer and trans folks across Washington state.
Snacks and all materials will be provided. Attendees will also have an opportunity to learn a bit more about being matched with a pen pal longer-term, if interested!
About Black and Pink
Black & Pink is an open family of LGBTQ prisoners and “free world” allies who support each other. Our work toward the abolition of the prison industrial complex is rooted in the experience of currently and formerly incarcerated people. We are outraged by the specific violence of the prison industrial complex against LGBTQ people, and respond through advocacy, education, direct service, and organizing.

Entrance: 36” doorway, door swings open/closed but is not automatic, no steps
Restroom: Single stall gender neutral, 29” doorway, interior width of 43” between sink and wall, sink height of 31”, no bar next to toilet
Layout: Open floorplan with flexibility to easily move tables, chairs, desks, and anything else that may cause limited accessibility throughout the space
Scents: The office is not currently scent-free, but we strongly encourage attendees not to wear perfumes or oils to accommodate our community members with fragrance sensitivities
