Center on Halsted is proud to host the Holiday Card Party. This gathering provides the opportunity to help elevate the voices, stories, and leadership of incarcerated LGBTQ folks and inspire immediate collective action towards abolition. In 2016, communities rallied together to host over 300 holiday card parties across the U.S., Canada, Japan, and Sweden with a holiday card sent to each incarcerated Black & Pink member.

This year, there are nearly 14,000 Black & Pink members, which means 14,000 holiday cards need to be sent out to incarcerated LGBTQ individuals. All too often, incarcerated LGBTQ individuals do not have family and friends to reach out to them with cards or visits, making this time particularly isolating. The cards we make will bring joy, connection and kindness to incarcerated LGBTQ individuals while telling prison staff that people on the outside are watching.
