October 28th: Prisoner Letter-Writing AfternoonPosted: October 27, 2012
EPIC presents a Prisoner Letter-Writing Afternoon
Sunday, October 28th, 2012 at 1:00pm
AKA Autonomous Social Centre, 75 Queen Street (wheelchair accessible)
Have you ever written a letter to a prisoner?
Prison is all about isolation and segregation, and the state does not want non-prisoners to connect with people inside its institutions. Letter-writing can be a great way to make a new friend, learn about the prison system and build connections between incarcerated folks and those outside.
At this first letter-writing night, we’ll talk about our experiences exchanging letters with prisoners, ways to find penpals, and ideas for getting started with writing. We’ll have some addresses available, and encourage people to come with other information to share. If you already have a friend or penpal inside, feel free to come, socialize, and use our materials to write to them.
Stamps, paper, envelopes, coffee and snacks will be provided. Childcare is available on request, contact epic (at) riseup (dot) net. AKA is a wheelchair-accessible space.
