About

The Midwest Trans Prisoner Pen Pal Project (MWTPPP) started as a support project for  CeCe McDonald and other trans* prisoners in Minnesota.  Since then, we’ve expanded to include the Midwest region.  MWTPPP seeks 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 we recognize the isolating and unsafe conditions for prisoners no matter what their situation.  We accept pen pal requests across the LGBTQI spectrum.

Currently we meet twice a month at Boneshaker Books in Minneapolis MN on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month from 6 pm to 8 pm.  This is our time to write letters and talk with other pen pals about their experience as well as go through the mail and send out information to people inquiring about our services.
