The NYC Chapter of Black & Pink formed its current iteration in February 2018. We work toward prison abolition through pen pal matching, mail processing/letter-writing, reentry support, sending solidarity packages and commissary to our inside members, and organizing with community partners in advocacy campaigns such as the opposition of 4 new jails in the boroughs.
