Letters Through Bars – April 2017
Write letters to incarcerated friends, loved ones, and other pen pals. Don’t have someone to write to? The event organizers will help you find someone who’s looking for a pen-pal. They also provide envelopes, stamps, and other writing supplies.
This month, attendees can write postcards to Mariposa, co-writer of Mariposa & the Saint, a play about Mariposa’s experiences in solitary confinement in a CA prison. Mariposa is still in solitary today and welcomes correspondence.
