Upcoming SPS Events

Join us on Tuesday, March 31st from 7-9 pm at the Coffee

Garden(2904Franklin Blvd, Sacto). We’ll be sending birthday cards to 4

political prisoners, and a ‘We Support You’ card to 4 others to remind

them that we are out here thinking of them. 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!
