From the HaveHeartCollective:
“This is the first of many events of its kind. In the wake of this event, we plan to host monthly letter writing nights every 3rd Friday of the month at the Cream City Collectives. In our view, prisoner support is something that needs to be sustained; a presence that needs to be continual. We know all too well the persistence of those who work overtime to send individuals to their captors. Point being, they don’t relent, why would we?
Envelopes, papers, pens, postage, and snacks will be provided (although it would be an awfully sweet surprise if one were to bring their own supplies). Remember, everything you write will be reviewed by the snouts of jail censors (polizei), so while your formulating ideas about what you’re going to write to your new pen pals, remember, what you say could land you or the prisoner you’re writing to in a hell of a lot of trouble. So, keep it legal; keep it fluffy.”
