Black and Pink will host our second national gathering August 4-6, 2017 in Chicago, Illinois! This is a gathering for formerly incarcerated LGBTQ and/or HIV+ people from across the US. This gathering is for any volunteers and pen pals connected with Black and Pink. This gathering is for any people actively involved in the movement towards abolition with a focus on the needs of LGBTQ and/or HIV+ people.

Black and Pink’s national office will cover all transportation costs for formerly incarcerated attendees. We will also find home-stays for people attending the gathering. Formerly incarcerated people will also receive a stipend of $100 for participating in the entire gathering.
