Women's Prison Book Project

The Women's Prison Book Project (WPBP) is a group of volunteers organizing to provide women in prison with free reading materials covering a wide range of topics from legal and education materials to politics, history, and women's health.

There are other prison book projects, but we seek to meet the specific needs of women in prison by providing materials on families, kids, self-help and legal aid materials for women serving prison time for fighting back against their abusers.

Please join us in getting this project off the ground. While we have vision and commitment, we need the support of others to make the WPBJ a reality. Specific needs include: Money (checks payable to WPBP), book donations (new or used), photocopying services, postage, new package-size envelopes, computer & printer, wheelchair accessible space.

We also welcome tips on U.S. women's prisons and words of encouragement. Contact: Women's Prison Book Project, c/o Arise Resource Center and Bookstore, 2441 Lyndale Ave. S., Minneapolis, MN 55405.
