Each month we gather virtually as a mail crew and volunteer team to host an open letter writing night to connect with folks looking to get involved with CRPDX. We receive about 300 letters a month and we offer political education, resource information, books and articles. One of the best ways to get involved currently is to sign up to participate in our mail program!
When the COVID-19 outbreak began, CR PDX adapted our traditional mail nights into virtual letter-writing sessions, where we provide an introduction workshop to the mail program, answer correspondence, ask/answer questions, and build an abolitionist community over a teleconferencing platform, such as Zoom or Jitsi. You can do the same! We don’t encourage in-person letter-writing parties right now, but collaborating over the internet is a great way to share your enthusiasm about building a world without walls. Find us virtually on the 3rd Mondays of the month at 6:00pm. Email us for more information and information to support hosting your own letter writing party!
