Monday March 5th, 7pm-9:30pm
Location: Le Cagibi (5490 St-Laurent)
Join Prisoner Correspondence Project for the March edition of our monthly letter-writing night! Cozy up with a warm drink in the backroom of le Cagibi, meet other non-incarcerated participants in the project, and write some letters, or get matched up with a new penpal! Everyone is welcome, whether you’re a seasoned penpal through the project or you’re interested in getting matched up for the first time.
We will start the night off with a short presentation on solidarity with incarcerated queer and trans folks and ways to get involved with the Prisoner Correspondence Project, before moving on to letter-writing. Prisoner Correspondence Project collective members will be around all evening to chat about the project and available to talk about our experiences as outside penpals, and to support you in any questions you might have about your letters.
We are always looking for new non-incarcerated folks to become penpals!
Hope to see you there!
The Prisoner Correspondence Project is a collectively-run initiative based out of Montreal, Quebec. It coordinates a direct-correspondence program for gay, lesbian, transsexual, transgender, gendervariant, two-spirit, intersex, bisexual and queer inmates in Canada and the United States, linking these inmates with people a part of these same communities outside of prison.
