MWTPPP is transitioning to a Black and Pink Chapter.

New website coming soon

 

Get Involved in the B&P Minneapolis chapter

B&P Minneapolis meetings at Boneshaker Books (2002 23rd Ave S, Minneapolis MN) the first and third Sunday of the month from 6 pm to 8 pm.  

Whether you have volunteered with us before or you are coming for your first time, all are welcome. Our in person meetings are indoors and masks are required. Here’s some of what we do at each meeting:

    • Mail processing
    • Help finding a pen pal and writing the first letter
    • Transition activities from MWTPPP to B&P chapter including data entry and sending information to current pen pals
    • Planning chapter outreach and activities

Our History

The Midwest Trans Prisoner Pen Pal Project (MWTPPP) started in 2011 as a support project for CeCe McDonald and other transgender, gender non-conforming prisoners in Minnesota.  MWTPPP was formed to connect Midwest-based incarcerated trans/gender non-conforming people with other trans/gender non-conforming and allied community member pen pals for friendship.  This project was initially launched to reach out to transgender prisoners who are placed in lock down (administrative segregation) but later accepted pen pal requests across the LGBTQI spectrum.
