Juneteenth Prisoner Card Making

Date: 
Wed, Jun 13, 2018 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

City:

Let's make cards for prisoners to celebrate Juneteenth. Supporting Prisoners And Real Change (SPARC) and Black & Pink are calling for cards to be sent to prisoners, to show solidarity to prisoners and to remind the guards that the world is watching. There will be snacks! Supplies provided (but stamps welcome!!)

This call to action is inspired by prisoners in Texas and Florida, two of the largest and most repressive prison systems in the U.S., who remain active in freedom struggle against all odds. #OperationPUSH

Donations will be accepted for Keep Loxicha Free
