WHEN: February 14th
WHERE: Everywhere – join us!
February 14th has become a day to offer commercialized messages of affection to those near and dear to us.
Obviously feelings of love can be expressed any day of the year, and actions speak louder than Hallmark cards. Therefore we are reclaiming this arbitrary day and using it for our own purpose – to send messages of love to those incarcerated for political reasons. They are locked away from their loved ones and need our support on a mid-February day, as well as every other.
This action is not intended to support the commodification of love by those who would profit off of it. We encourage you to create your own cards, postcards, and letters to let our comrades know they are remembered with love.
IMPORTANT: If you are sending cards to prisoners, do not use glitter or stickers. They are considered contraband (seriously).

PLEASE NOTE: You can easily, quickly, and cheaply create custom postcards for inmates at many of these facilities by visiting our friends at FlikShop.
