Building Bridges Through Books book drive

This book drive has now concluded.  Thanks for your support!


The Human Rights Pen Pals (HRPP) is excited to launch a new reading group, Building Bridges Through Books, which is open to all pen pals both inside and outside the prison walls.


Consider supporting book club by purchasing books. Our inside pen pals will need copies of our first book, "A People's History of the U.S" and a dictionary/thesaurus to get started. As a bonus, we would like to include the graphic novel version of

"People's History of the United States."


Our goal is to collect 15 copies of each title to see this project through for at least a year. We will provide postage for many letters and book club packets. Another way to help is to spread the word and encourage your family and friends to support this new initiative.


Your donation will help reduce isolation, increase education, and foster meaningful connections for someone in solitary confinement, and will make our movement for human rights stronger all around.


Email for more information.


Thank you for your support!
