New Orleans Chapter: July Updates

In New Orleans this month, volunteers met up twice with laptops at Flora’s Cafe to update the profiles of the dozens of Louisiana incarcerated members who wrote us back.   It’s always a nice time, munching down on hummus and nachos and gabbing about queer life in the Big Easy.  The prisoners filled out pen-pal forms and letters to a prospective new pen-pal. One volunteer is scanning in all of the letters to prospective pen-pals to add to their online profile, and then we’ll be able to hand them out in person!  Next month, we’re going to devise a plan to find “free-world” pen-pals for all of those folks!
