Lavender Rights Project is proud to welcome Black & Pink for a Pen Pal Party, a one-stop shop offering all the info you need to get matched as a pen pal with LGBTQ incarcerated folks in Washington!
Black & Pink will provide a brief presentation about their pen pal program, facilitate a panel of experienced pen pals to answer your questions and give advice, and match you with a pen pal — all in one night!
There will be time after the info session to write letters, ask additional questions, and learn more about getting involved with Black & Pink and the Lavender Rights Project. Snacks and all materials will be provided.
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.
