Receiving letters can be a form of harm reduction for incarcerated people. Join us to write letters to someone in prison, and APLD will mail your finished letters after our program.

Come gather to write letters to people that are incarcerated. We will first discuss the benefits of letter writing. We will also go over important things to remember when writing letters to incarcerated people (banned materials in prisons, etc). A brief video will be shown and background material will be shared with the group. Then, the remainder of the time will be spent writing letters.

Stamps, envelopes, paper, pencils, and snacks will be provided! No registration is required- please drop in! Teens- volunteer credit is available. 

Read more about letter writing to incarcerated people.
