MLK Week: Letter Writing to Incarcerated Individuals

Jan. 22

12:00–1:00 pm

The Human Rights Lab and IOP’s Bridge Writing Workshop are collaborating to host a virtual letter writing program for folks currently incarcerated in Illinois. The event will feature mini-keynote addresses from Maya Schenwar and Colette Payne, tools on how to write a letter of solidarity, and guidance for continuing a pen pal relationship beyond this event. 

Samantha Dunn from Black and Pink: Chicago will facilitate a breakout group for those interested in long-term letter writing.

Participating UChicago students based in Chicago will also have access to subsidized stamps and envelopes.
