Context:
From the Shannon Barry case, to G20 activism – Queers, our sex, and how it all relates to the prison system has become for some people more real and more in focus.

What do we know about prison?
What is it like for queers in jail?
What are alternatives to prison?
Why should we care about the prison system?

What to expect:
Join as we listen to first person accounts from queer prisoners, information from people both within and outside the prison system, and audio art – from the Prisoner Correspondence Project CD.

Casual community discussion will follow.

Come listen, learn, and contribute.
Everyone is welcome.
You do not have to be a Community Response Project member to attend.
