ST. LOUIS, Mo. - A Transgender prisoner letter writing night is being organized at Mokabe's Coffee (Grand & Arsenal) in Tower Grove on Thursday nights at 7 p.m. starting on Jan. 21. According to organizers, the action is an opportunity for community members and allies to form relationships with and support trans prisoners, many of whom have unmet emotional, legal, medical and financial needs.

"Its also a time where we can meet new people with whom to collaborate on organizing fund raisers and legal support for folks with whom we have affinty that are behind bars," said Mel Braman, a St. Louis based social justice advocate. "Just as our lives are violently repressed on the outside, trans people experience extreme suffering and death within the walls of jails, prisons, youth facilities and immigrant detention centers. Take a step into solidarity and join us."
