Join us for our monthly letter-writing to political prisoners that we hold on the 4th Monday each month. To observe social distancing, we will hold this event online once again on the secure video platform, Jitsi.

In honor of the International Day of Solidarity with Anti-fascist Prisoners, this month we’re writing letters to Gage Halupowski, an anti-fascist political prisoner serving an insane six year prison sentence stemming from a counter protest to a far right rally in Portland, OR on June 29th, 2019.

From the Antifa Sacramento prisoner list:

If you’re looking for different ways to engage with Gage when sitting down to write that first letter, here are a few things to keep in mind – not only is he an anti fascist but he also is a radical environmentalist and an anarchist. So, discussing history, politics or the ideologies of those movements as well could be a good place to start. He is also a fan of the fantasy novel series, The Wheel of Time and looks forward to reading all 12 books in the series while he’s in, so if you’ve read those or would like to he’d love to discuss them with you.

If you are unable to join us, please send Gage a letter anyways:
