Women: Be a Pen Pal to a Prisoner

The Action Committee for Women in Prison (ACWIP) sponsors a pen pal program that matches up women serving long sentences with out women.  If you are uncomfortable using your own address, you can use ACWIP’s P.O. box and they will forward letters to your home address.  For more information contact penpal@acwip.net or visit http://www.acwip.net/penpals.htm.  The list of women waiting for pen pals gets longer each day.
