The Boston Chapter organizes itself by having members volunteer to be point people, or coordinators, for the major focus areas of our work. Our plan is to rotate this responsibility quarterly, to make sure folks can step up & step back as they need while giving stability to the Chapter’s work.

Our work towards the abolition of the prison industrial complex is rooted in the experiences and wisdom of currently and formerly incarcerated people. We are outraged by the specific violences of the prison industrial complex against LGBTQ people, and respond through advocacy, education, direct action, and community building. Our penpal program links free world allies to incarcerated queer and trans folks as a powerful resistance to the violent isolation of the prison system.

Once there were no prisons. That day will come again.

Contact boston@blackandpink.org for more information.
