Join Us to Send Some Holiday Love to Queer Folks in Prison! 12/15/16

flyer-draft-3-thursday-updateFor the Birds is honored to host our second annual Black and Pink holiday card making party for LGBTQ folks in prison!

December 15th from 7 to 9 pm @ the National Lawyers Guild National Office. 132 Nassau St, Suite 922.

Cards and addresses are provided, as long as all the art supplies you need to make your cards look festive!  Holidays can always be hard, but especially if you are locked inside away from your community. Sending any kind of mail to people in prison can make a concrete contribution to their safety as well, as mail calls are usually public and your mail tells guards and other inmates that the recipient of your card has support and people who care on the outside. This event offers a very easy way that you can push back against the dehumanization of the prison industrial complex, which impacts queer folks particularly hard. We will also be collecting book donations for Books Through Bars (check out the list of what they need most).  More details on our FB event page, hope to see folks there!
