Books to Prisoners

Association ou organisation à but non lucratif

Dernière mise à jour : 10 mai 2013 15:48:09

Description

Books to Prisoners is an all-volunteer organization that in affiliation with Left Bank Books has been working in Seattle for the last 40 years on behalf of prisoners who submit requests for reading material. Each year, Books to Prisoners mails about 15,000 packages of books to prisoners. Our group recently received one of nine "Light-a-Fire" awards from the Seattle Foundation in the category of "Purely for the Love" -- for doing the most with the least.

Books to Prisoners is the sponsor of the Seattle Social Justice Film Festival.

2013 Festival Mission:

To exhibit a series of short and feature-length documentaries and narrative films broadly related to social justice, with a special focus on prisoner justice in the U.S.

About the Organization:

The Social Justice Film Festival highlights film and video work being done to institute change around the world. As a movement, social justice promotes a global culture where equality is achieved on all levels. This includes issues pertaining to incarceration, the environment and sustainability, oppression, race and racism, the arts, animal right, alternative currency and lifestyles, corruption within the system, and so much more. The festival will showcase works that challenge society structures all over the glove on a macro and micro level as well as works that challenge the medium.

Films will explore topics such as:

  • Environment
  • Food and Agriculture
  • LGBT Rights
  • Women's Issues
  • Racial Equality
  • Debt Slavery
  • Economic Justice
  • ...and more!

Prisoner Justice topics will include:

  • Prison Industrial Complex
  • Juvenile Justice
  • Solitary Confinement
  • Incarcerated Mothers
  • "New Jim Crow" Analysis
  • Three-strikes Laws
  • Prison Privatization
  • ...and more!
