We are a Queer/Trans Prisoner Solidarity Project in the SF Bay Area, currently connected as a chapter of Black & Pink. Prison abolition is our goal, and our strategy for action.
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.
We envision our work as direct solidarity with our community on the inside through letterwriting, prison visits, political education, and community organizing to combat the damaging effects of criminalization as they relate to queer/trans experiences and through a queer/trans lens.
