August Updates from Boston Chapter

We presented a School to Prison pipeline workshop at the Boston Alliance of LGBTQ Youth’s Queer Activist College.

We tabled at the Trans Health Fair at Boston Healthcare for the Homeless with some of our formerly incarcerated trans women members. At the event we connected with some formerly incarcerated people and hope to include them in our future work!

We had two interns from the Unitarian Universalist College of Social Justice who spent four days with us learning about the prison industrial complex and learning about how to apply abolitionist ideas to their faith communities and work.

Black and Pink Boston began taking part this July in a growing community campaign against Stop and Frisk and other racist police practices in collaboration with Youth Against Mass Incarceration, the ACLU of Massachusetts, and many other abolitionist and prison reform organizations.

This month, Jason led a training for Boston public defenders on how to work with LGBTQ clients.

Mail processing is every Sunday from 1pm to 4pm at Make Shift Boston (549 Columbus Ave).
