The Last Prisoner Project (LPP) is a coalition of cannabis industry leaders, executives and artists dedicated to bringing restorative justice to the cannabis industry. LPP is dedicated to releasing cannabis prisoners and helping them rebuild their lives.
Join Cannabis Marketing Association and Last Prisoner Project for our Letter Writing Happy Hour on October 13. Attendees will hear from LPP’s Managing Director, Mary Bailey, to learn about Last Prisoner Project’s Letter Writing Program, how to get involved, and have the opportunity to write an LPP constituent a letter.
What to Write
The biggest hurdle to beginning a pen pal relationship is getting started. A suggestion for a first letter might include an intro with a short bio, an explanation of how you came to hear about your pen pal, hobbies, pets, music, activism, etc. Let them know that cannabis justice activists like yourself are fighting for their freedom! Don’t forget, the prison mail system can be slow. Sometimes it takes several weeks to get a response.
- Plain white envelopes only
- No stamps (other than postage stamps on the envelope), stickers, tape, glue, glitter, staples, paper clips, fragrances, crayon, ribbon, etc on the envelope or letter
- No popup/out content
- No address labels
- All ingoing and outgoing mail is subject to inspection. Never include anything you wouldn’t want staff to read
- No drawings or markings that can be misconstrued as secret code or inappropriate content etc
- Please realize that even if you do everything correctly, mail can be returned
Addressing the Envelope
Always include your pen pal’s full name, six-digit prison ID#, institution name, address, and your full name and return address.
This event is free to everyone; however, $10 donations to Last Prisoner Project are suggested.
