New Volunteers: Orientation this Sunday, July 27

Concerned about prison issues and want to get involved? Intrigued by the chance to make a concrete, personal difference in the lives of prisoners? Interested in offering women behind bars the opportunity for self-empowerment, education and entertainment that reading provides?
Join us for our next orientation session, led by one of our experienced volunteers, this Sunday at 1 pm. (Our volunteer orientations take place the last Sunday of each month, 1–2pm, right before our regular 2–5pm work session.) Get the details here.
And of course, there are always other ways to get involved and help get books in the hands of women in prison. See you soon!
