Upcoming Event

We are holding our next penpal training and introduction to our penpal programwhich connects penpals from the outside (non-incarcerated) with folks on the inside (incarcerated). The training will include info about our guiding principles, structure, logistics, and some reflection time on penpal relationships.

This session will be on Sunday June 26th from 10-11:30 PT / 1-2:30 ET

Current penpals are also invited to lead a ritual, opening, or song, or sharing about their experience being a penpal during this meeting. If interested, please email us by next Tuesday June 21st.
