The Chicago chapter of Black and Pink started in 2013. We first came together to read and discuss a book called The New Jim Crow, and write holiday cards to LGBTQ people locked up in Illinois. We officially formed as a chapter of Black and Pink last spring. Since then, we have focused on finding, matching, and supporting LGBTQ penpals in Illinois, and learning more about the prison industrial complex, or PIC.
