PrYSM is on the 2nd floor up a flight of stairs and across the lobby at 669 Elmwood Ave (industrial building behind Dorcas International Instutue). It is easiest to get to from the 20 or 22 bus and there is parking in front of and up the hill to the right of the building. If you need a ride message us and we’ll see if we can set you up to carpool with a B&P member.
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.
Negra y Rosa es una familia abierta de presos LGBTQ y de aliados del “mundo libre” que se apoyan entre si. Nuestro trabajo hacia la abolición del complejo industrial de prisiones se basa en las experiencias de las personas que están actualmente encarceladas y que han sido encarceladas en el pasado. Estamos indignados por la violencia especifica del complejo industrial de prisiones contra las personas LGBT, y respondemos mediante actividades de apoyo, educación, servicios directos, y organizando en la comunidad.
