Black and Pink National LGBTQ Prisoner Survey

View the survey HERE

After over a year of work, we are finally sending out Black and Pink’s National LGBTQ Prisoner Survey! The purpose of this survey is to find out more about the lives and experiences of incarcerated LGBTQ people. We are hoping to gather information that we can share with politicians, community organizations, and, most importantly, with all of our Black and Pink membership. Many of these questions were created by Black and Pink members who are in prison. The rest of the questions were created by “free world” volunteers. Everyone who fills out a complete survey and sends it back to us will receive a certificate of thanks as well as a Resource Guide with addresses of organizations (which will be shared over time in the Newspaper as well; it is convenient for us to mail it with the certificate). Each person who fills out a survey will also have the possibility of receiving $25 for commissary (there will be 25 randomly selected winners; sadly we do not have enough funds to give everyone $25). Our goal is to get AT LEAST 1,000 complete surveys, so please do fill it out

We are very excited about this survey. We have been inspired by the incredible reports and work done by organizations like the Sylvia Rivera Law Project and Hearts on a Wire. We hope that this survey will be able to provide all of us with more information to more effectively organize towards abolition with a particular focus on the experiences of LGBTQ prisoners.
