Coming Out of Concrete Closets: Storytelling and Abolitionist Visioning with Black & Pink

January 22, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

6 – 8p Event
8 – 9p Refreshments and Social Hour

During the latter months of 2014, Black & Pink, conducted a survey of our prisoner membership. Nearly 1,200 prisoners responded to our 133-question survey, producing the largest ever dataset available on the experiences of LGBTQ prisoners in the country. The intent of this survey was to get some truth out from behind prison walls about the experiences of LBGTQ prisoners in the United States. Our report aims to share that truth by elevating prisoner voices, stories, and leadership to inspire immediate collective action.

This event will include an overview presentation about the survey from our National Director, Jason Lydon, and storytelling by formerly incarcerated members of Black and Pink, including CeCe McDonald, Eddie Willis, Steven Harness, and others.

You can see the report and some press the report received here –
