We did it, NYC! We survived the storm of the century a regular winter snow storm. NYC ABC is not known for backing away from supporting our imprisoned comrades, regardless of weather or other reasons, and this week will be no different. We are focusing this week’s letter-writing dinner on recently imprisoned anti-fascist Jason Hammond.

Jason Hammond pleaded guilty, while refusing to provide information on others, to state charges against him for participation in an organized direct action taken against a group of white supremacists in May 2012 in Tinley Park, Illinois. Jason is currently serving a sentence of nearly three and a half years in an Illinois state prison. 

We expect to see you on Tuesday. If you can’t make it, please take the time to write a letter to Jason:

Jason Hammond M50190
Stateville Correctional Center
Post Office Box 112
Joliet, Illinois 60434

The deal, as always, is that you come bringing only yourself (and your friends and comrades), and we provide you with a delicious vegan meal, information about the prisoners as well as all of the letter-writing materials and prisoner-letter-writing info you could ever want to use in one evening. In return, you write a thoughtful letter to a political prisoner or prisoner of war of your choosing or, better yet, keep up a long-term correspondence. We’ll also provide some brief updates and pass around birthday cards for the PP/POWs whose birthdays fall in the next two weeks thanks to the PP/POW Birthday Calendar.
