Burn the Prisons

The United States has the largest and most sophisticated prison industrial complex the world has ever known. One day, humans will abandon this archaic form of control and abuse, but until we do, we must support prisoners everywhere. To people who are incarcerated, even receiving a letter from someone can make your whole day.  

Here is a small list of some fellow prisoners who could use some support, and some groups who are working to overthrow the prison system

Jeremy Hammond

Jeremy is Jason's 2 minute older twin brother, and is currently serving time on a 10 year sentence for hacking and whistle-blowing against various sectors of the US government and the third-party data-sweeping spy groups they hire. Check out his website here.

The Tinley Park 5

Although the TP5 have all been released from prison, many of them are still on parole. They are anti-fascists who, along with Jason, interrupted a group of neo-nazi's in Tinley Park.

Anarchist Black Cross

ABC is an anarchist prison abolitionist federation that focuses on prisoner support. This site contains many resources, including a large list of activists currently behind bars.

Black and Pink

Black & Pink is an open family of LGBTQ prisoners and “free world” allies who support each other. Our work toward the abolition of the prison industrial complex is rooted in the experience of currently and formerly incarcerated people. We are outraged by the specific violence of the prison industrial complex against LGBTQ people, and respond through advocacy, education, direct service, and organizing.

Project NIA
Project NIA is an advocacy, organizing, popular education, research, and capacity-building center with the long-term goal of ending youth incarceration. We believe that several simultaneous approaches are necessary in order to develop and sustain community-based alternatives to the system of policing and incarceration.  Our mission is to dramatically reduce the reliance on arrest, detention, and incarceration for addressing youth crime and to instead promote the use of restorative and transformative practices, a concept that relies on community-based alternatives.

We Charge Genocide

We Charge Genocide is a grassroots, inter-generational effort to center the voices and experiences of the young people most targeted by police violence in Chicago.  Instances of police violence reveal the underlying relationship between marginalized communities and the state.  This is a relationship of unequal access to power and resources.  This is also a relationship where violence is too often used by the police to silence, isolate, control and repress low-income people and young people of color of color in particular.  

Mail to the Jail

As supporters of all jailed political prisoners, the goal of Mail to the Jail is to let them know they are not forgotten. Mail to the Jail can also be found on Facebook and Twitter.
