Project Reach: 39 Eldridge St. Suite 4 NY, NY

Has slavery really been abolished?

Come join Deep Green Resistance Prisoner Support Group at Project Reach and examine the ties between the modern prison industrial complex and slavery.

Writing to other activists who've been imprisoned, we seek to build a culture of resistance and support between those who have been at the front lines, and those continuing the fight against social injustice. Separated we are a few, but together, we are legion.
