Description

Please Join Critical Resistance Portland for our monthly Mail Program!

Each month we gather as a mail crew and volunteer team to host an open letter writing + work party to connect with folks looking to get involved. We receive anywhere from 5-25 letters a month and we offer political education, resource information, and books and articles Folks can help out by writing letters to people in OR/WA prisons, typing notes or archiving correspondence, as well as other things that help our chapter running. This is the best time to connect with chapter members and learn more about upcoming projects, events and build coalitions amongst accomplices for abolition.

All materials will be provided and CR PDX has a P.O. box for folks to write back to. One of the best parts about mail program work parties is that we put out all of the political education materials we use, both for events and our mail program. Come read some stuff and maybe help inventory our supplies.

Donations of stamps (.92, .47, and postcard stamps specifically), pens, lined paper, and envelopes are always needed and welcome.

Wifi available

See you there - CRPDX

Who we are: Critical Resistance is a national grassroots organization working to end society's reliance on imprisonment, policing and surveillance as responses to social, economic & political problems.

Portland’s Chapter of Critical Resistance was founded fall of 2013. We are currently working on an anti-policing campaign.

Our Mission Critical Resistance seeks to build an international movement to end the prison industrial complex (PIC) by challenging the belief that caging and controlling people makes us safe. We believe that basic necessities such as food, shelter, and freedom are what really make our communities secure. As such, our work is part of global struggles against inequality and powerlessness. The success of the movement requires that it reflect communities most affected by the PIC. Because we seek to abolish the PIC, we cannot support any work that extends its life or scope.
