Criminal Justice Caucus

As you can imagine, the holiday season can be a really rough time for folks inside prison. Whatever holidays you may or not may not celebrate this time of year, our incarcerated members are often denied the ability to celebrate their traditions in the ways they choose, whether their desire be to celebrate the returning of light for Solstice, the miracle of Hanukkah, the birth story of Jesus, the Black radical tradition of Kwanzaa, New Year’s Day, or something else. All too often our members do not have family and friends to reach out to them with cards or visits, making this time particularly isolating. The cards you will make bring moments of joy, connection, and kindness to our members while telling prison staff that people on the outside are watching.
