Send a Solidarity Letter

Letter By Letter NH/VT is a project created by community members in the Upper Valley. We are looking for groups and individuals to help them meet their goal of writing to ALL of the 1,400 people incarcerated in Vermont and the 2,400 people incarcerated in New Hampshire (including people who have been sent to out-of-state facilities). We need your help to reach everyone!

Prisons erode social connections and deny people’s humanity. We write to remind people, inside and out, that no one is disposable and no one is forgotten. You can write as few or as many Solidarity Letters as you’d like – or get together with friends to host a virtual letter writing gathering. Information on how to get started, including a sample letter, can be found on the Letter By Letter NH/VT website here: Solidarity Letter Writing Campaign.

The Windsor Public Library will also be hosting a Letter By Letter Virtual Writing Gathering on Monday, January 4th, 6:30PM. Learn about becoming a prison penpal, and Q&A with the folks behind Letter By Letter. More info and zoom link on the Windsor Library Events page.
