What we're about

This group is a beta chapter of Black and Pink, a foundation which helps meet the needs of LGBTQ and HIV+ inmates. The meetups of this group will range from planning meetings to letter writing to yoga fundraisers for the national B+P foundation. Anyone interested in prison solidarity and abolition should join this group.

Black & Pink is an open family of LGBTQ prisoners and “free world” allies who support each other. Our work toward the abolition of the prison industrial complex is rooted in the experience of currently and formerly incarcerated people. We are outraged by the specific violence of the prison industrial complex against LGBTQ people, and respond through advocacy, education, direct service, and organizing.
