Watch: The Lab and IOP collaborate for Letter Writing to Incarcerated Individuals

As part of the University’s MLK Week programming, the Human Rights Lab and IOP’s Bridge Writing Workshop collaborated to host a virtual letter writing program for folks currently incarcerated in Illinois. The event featured mini-keynote addresses from Maya Schenwar and Colette Payne, tools on how to write a letter of solidarity, and guidance for continuing a pen pal relationship beyond the event by Samantha Dunn from Black and Pink: Chicago, who also facilitated a breakout group for those interested in long-term letter writing.
