LGBTQ+ Prison Pen Pal Writing Parties

Friday, April 21, 2017 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

SOL: LGBTQ+ Multicultural Support Network and the Pride Center are proud to be putting on our LGBTQ+ Prison Pen Pal events! On Monday April 17th, we will be joined by OSU professor Dr. Rakes, with the first hour of the writing party dedicated to talking about the Prison Industiral Complex, prison abolition, and statistics around being LGBTQ+ in prison. All writing materials will be provided and no committment to being a long term pen pal is needed to write a letter.

In conjuction with this event, we will also be holding a queer book drive where we will be sending LGBTQ+ themed books to local prisons to add to their libraries. You are welcome to drop off a book to donate at any of these writing parties or anytime starting April 17th-26th in the Pride Center.
