Please join Survived and Punished NY on Sunday, December 9, from 1-4:30pm, at the People's Forum for "Send them Home for the Holidays", a holiday card writing party for those behind prison walls in New York State. 

Being incarcerated is a de-humanizing and isolating experience for the person behind bars and their family and community. Trauma is worse around the holidays when many are planning to spend time with family, friends, and loved ones. Sending cards and small gift packages is one way that we can lessen the loneliness experienced during this time.

Please join us -- we will supply the cards, envelopes, addresses, and snacks. All you have to do is come and help us.

If you want to do a little more, you can donate online to S&P, and we will buy gift items. The wish list is mostly small items which are very expensive to purchase -- dental floss, shampoo, snacks, etc.

We also need STAMPS so please bring some along with you to donate.

Address: The People's Forum 320 West 37th Street, New York NY 10018
