For folks interested in organizing against the Richmond City Jail, or just working with the Anarchist Black Cross, we are highlighting some of the zines in our collection that are relevant to jail and prison issues.
There are some zines written by incarcerated people, political prisoners, and folks who survived time in prison, while others are just about the prison system and how people struggle against it. Lots of good insight and ideas, especially for folks new to organizing around prison issues and political prisoners
You can come by during Open Hours on Wednesdays and Fridays from 4-9pm to read zines. Unfortunately zines can not be checked out.
