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 our meetings:

    • Mail processing
    • Help finding a pen pal and writing the first letter
    • Data entry and sending information to current pen pals
    • Planning chapter outreach and activities
    • Advocacy for Minnesota prisoners

Our History

The Minneapolis Black and Pink chapter was formed in the summer of 2021. Prior to this, we were the Midwest Trans Prisoner Pen Pal Project (MWTPPP) which 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.
