Write Political Prisoners Always (but especially during the COVD-19 pandemic)!

Check out our list of US-held political prisoners and prisoner of war and send a letter to one or a few people. Many of these folks are on lockdown right now- locked in their cells or dorms. They have no visits, many of them do not have access to commissary and none have access to protective equipment or adequate cleaning supplies to keep them safe.

They do have mail right now and many have email so shoot a letter out and let them know you care and see what they need. Our comrades at NYCABC have a great letter writing how-to as well as their Illustrated Guide to PPs to check out as well.

Briefly, Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War (PP/POWs) are “those persons incarcerated as a result of political beliefs or actions consciously undertaken and intended to resist exploitation and oppression, and/or hasten the implementation of an egalitarian, sustainable, ethical, classless society, predicated on self determination and maximization of all people’s freedom.(Bill Dunne)
