Milwaukee’s Black and Pink Organization Drops in on FORGE
October 9, 2017
At our monthly meeting on July 15th 2017 members from the Milwaukee chapter of Black and Pink (www.blackandpink.org) joined us for our screening of the award-winning documentary film “Major!” (http://www.missmajorfilm.com/). Black and Pink describe themselves, “an open family of LGBTQ prisoners and ‘free world’ allies who support each other,” and, “work toward the abolition of the prison industrial complex […] through advocacy, education, direct service, and organizing.” Trans and LGBQ folks are frequently at an increased risk for sexual assault and abuse while incarcerated, and the members added a lot to our discussion following the film. Black and Pink offers a host of resources including a pen pal program, a newsletter, support, workshops and trainings.
