Currently a penpal with Black and Pink: Chicago?
Ever thought about being a penpal with a prisoner?
Black and Pink—an open family of GLBTQ prisoners and “free world” allies who support each other—can connect you with a queer or trans prisoner in Illinois.
Join volunteers from Chicago Books to Women in Prison in conversation with Black and Pink on strengthening pen pal relationships, talking through issues that may come up in letter writing, and building community. Whether you’ve been writing someone for years, or are just considering becoming a pen pal, we’d love to see you there!
Saturday, June 13, 1:30–3:30 p.m.
2620 N. Milwaukee Ave., Chicago
