Getting Settled in Our New Home

On Sunday we moved to our new space at Ravenswood Fellowship United Methodist Church, 4511 N. Hermitage Avenue. A break from snowfall, a sunny sky and everyone pulling together made it all go smoothly.

Thank you to all the wonderful people at RFUMC who made this possible and have welcomed us so warmly, as well as to all the volunteers who turned out on Sunday afternoon. We’re still getting organized and putting things in place, but our doors are open 2–5 pm on Sunday if you have paperback books or other materials you’d like to drop off.


1,441 packages so far in 2020!

In 2019, we sent 5,117 packages—more than 15,300 books and composition books—to women and trans people locked up across the country. (In 2018 we sent 4,852 packages.) Big, big thanks to all our supporters because we couldn’t do it without you. (updated October 19, 2020)
