Join us on Tuesday, April 28th from 7-9 pm at the Coffee Garden(2904Franklin Blvd, Sacto). We’ll be sending a birthday card to one political prisoner, and a ‘We Support You’ card to 7 others to remind them that we are out here thinking of them all. We’ll have plenty of cards that we can fill with individual notes from everyone. If there are other prisoners you’d like to write, we’ll have envelopes and paper for that, too.
Hope to see you there!
