“If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation in bound up with mine, then let us work together.” -Lilla Watson, Murri activist
Books to Prisoners has weekly work sessions, however, we are not currently accepting drop-in volunteers. In addition to filling and packing inmate requests, our work includes procurement of book donations, fundraising, and collaboration with other organizations committed to mitigating the impact of incarceration on individuals, families, and communities. If you think you might be interested in a long-term commitment with Olympia BTP, please contact us via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to begin a conversation. This work is incredibly rewarding if you have a love of books and the ability to provide non-judgemental support to others.
Olympia Books to Prisoners is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment and to addressing oppression and discrimination within our space.
