Black & Pink
Black & Pink (black for the anarchy flag, pink for queer power) is a social justice organization for LGBTQIA2S+ people and people living with HIV/AIDS, providing advocacy and support. Established in 2005, the group distributes a free national newsletter to LGBTQ people who are incarcerated. “Black & Pink is an open family of LGBTQ prisoners and free world allies who support each other. Our work toward the abolition of the prison industrial complex is rooted in the experience of currently and formerly incarcerated people. We are outraged by the specific violence of the prison industrial complex against LGBTQ people, and respond through advocacy, education, direct service, and organizing,” declares their mission statement.
