Prisoner Solidarity Postcard Events

Prisoner Solidarity Postcard Events

Every year in the holiday times, Critical Resistance chapters host Prisoner Solidarity Mailing Parties to send imprisoned readers an extra personalized note and piece of art. Make a gift this month to move meaningful materials across prison walls: The Abolitionist newspaper and our annual year end prisoner solidarity mailing. Donate here.

To pull of this ambitious and meaningful project, we engage our movement communities in Portland, OR; New York, NY; Oakland and Los Angeles, CA. Follow each chapter on Facebook for event updates or see below for more details.

Our 2018 postcard features art by Leslie Lopez aka Dime, a visionary East Oakland artist organizer with Eastside Cultural Center (Oakland, CA) and Few and Far Women, a national mural and graffiti team. Your prisoner solidarity gifts make this mailing possible!

(After you gift to our prisoner mailing, check out our fresh new CR + Dime collaboration tshirts and hoodies with this design.)
