virtual | digital | zine
To stay in touch with our people inside and let them know we were thinking of them during Covid-19, we did a series of virtual letter-writing campaigns in April and May of 2020. Volunteers were supplied names and addresses of people who had requested books from us during the pandemic, and a template that used the amazing “What to do during a pandemic” series by Ricardo Levins Morales. They personalized these notes during a group Zoom call.
We have since received a myriad of responses from people inside, telling us about conditions in prison during Covid-19, and sharing words of solidarity with others inside. The responses were powerful, and we can’t wait to share the words with you. We are currently working on a zine that will be mailed back to people inside, and informational materials to share with our volunteers, donors and supporters on the outside.
