The Black & Pink Newsletter has been distributed free of charge to a rapidly growing list of incarcerated LGBTQ+ members and incarcerated members living with HIV/AIDS around the country since 2010! We now have over 14,000 subscribers. Each issue is full of pieces submitted by our incarcerated members; relevant news, history, and opinions from the free world; and reflections from our national Executive Director.
We include a calendar so that people in solitary confinement can keep track of which day it is. Periodically, the newspaper includes a form for inside members to update their PenPal listing. Each month, we ask inside members to reply to a feedback questionnaire via mail to inform our organizing efforts.
