We’re Moving Soon and Need Your Help

Chicago Books to Women in Prison is moving in two weeks, and we need everyone’s help with two important things:

  1. We have to collectively determine where our new home will be. Learn more about our three appealing options and vote here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CQTHFV7

  2. We need boxes for books, we need tape for the boxes, we need people to help remove our shelving from the walls in our current home at 950 W Newport, and we will eventually need people to help us unpack and sort out our new home. Please email us at chicagobwp@gmail.com to let us know how you’re able to help!

IMPORTANT: Learn more before donating books
Please check with us before organizing a book drive or putting together a donation of more than a few books from your own library. We are well stocked and storage space is limited.

1,558 packages so far in 2019

Focusing on all women and trans/non-binary people, last year we sent 4,852 packages to people locked up across the country—nearly 13,500 books and composition books in all. Big thanks to all our supporters because we couldn’t do it without you! (updated April 22, 2019)
