CR PDX Prisoner Correspondence Night

Please Join Critical Resistance Portland for our monthly Mail Program! 

Each month we gather as a mail crew and volunteer team to host an open letter writing + work party to connect with folks looking to get involved. We receive anywhere from 5-25 letters a month and we offer political education, resource information, and books and articles Folks can help out by writing letters to people in OR/WA prisons, typing notes or archiving correspondence, as well as other things that help our chapter running. This is the best time to connect with chapter members and learn more about upcoming projects, events and build coalitions amongst accomplices for abolition. 

All materials will be provided and CR PDX has a P.O. box for folks to write back to. One of the best parts about mail program work parties is that we put out all of the political education materials we use, both for events and our mail program. Come read some stuff and maybe help inventory our supplies. 

Donations of stamps (.92, .47, and postcard stamps specifically), pens, lined paper, and envelopes are always needed and welcome.
