Trans Prisoner 'Zine update from TJLP

Hello fabulous supporters of TJLP! 

We are emailing you because TJLP is currently looking for 2-3 regular volunteers who can dedicate three hours per week to helping with the second volume of Hidden Expressions, a 'zine created by and for incarcerated transgender and gender non-conforming peoplePlease read the first volume here, and see the attached flier for a more detailed description of the project! We are excited to say that we have received over 100 incredible submissions so far, and we receive an average of five more per week. The main crew working on this project currently includes three volunteers who are incarcerated, as well as one collective member and two volunteers on the outside, but given the overwhelming response we've received, we need more people power! 

Some of the tasks we need help with include: 
  1. reading, appreciation, photocopying, and archiving all of our earth-shattering submissions
  2. corresponding with the fierce trans folks who write to us while incarcerated
  3. supporting fundraising efforts
If any of these sound interesting to you, then we'd love to meet with you in person to talk about what you can do to help us make this publication happen! The 'Zine Crew typically meets in the TJLP office in Uptown on Wednesday evenings, from 5:30pm-9:00pm. If you are interested, please email Lark Mulligan, at lark@tjlp.org, and include a few sentences describing yourself, why you are interested in Hidden Expressions, and what you'd like to do to help. Thank you so much for your revolutionary support, and we hope you are well! 


In Solidarity,

Shaylanna, Kierra, Monica, and Lark
TJLP 'Zine Crew
