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.

Brightly colored neoncomic, reads from right to left “No matter where you are … you are family. No matter where you are … you are loved. No matter where you are … you matter. At the holidays … and always.” Images include an older man by a flower box giving a flower to a person wearing a hijab, a person on the phone holding a small child, a person throwing a paper airplane to a seated person, a person with a beard chatting with a woman who is inside prison using prison communication software and finally, a person with shoulder-length hair reading a letter.
