Story

Black & Pink is an abolitionist organization that seeks to build community and liberation of LGBTQ and HIV+ people impacted by the Prison Industrial Complex. We know that our family held within prisons is particularly at risk during the COVID-19 pandemic, so we raised over $30,000 to send to our members in prisons across New England. These letters are from those members telling us what they spent that money on (lots of soap!), thanking us for the donation during this crisis, and looking for connections outside prison walls. LGBTQ people know we cannot rely upon the government to help us in times of crisis, we are each others' help and we survive through mutual aid.
