Fighting Washington’s ‘used books to prisoners’ ban!

April 2019  |  Published in Announcements, Latest News

Unfortunately, another state has decided to interfere in the efforts of countless books to prisoners organizations, as Washington State decided to ban used books being sent to inmates.

Fortunately, the local Seattle Books To Prisoners group (which sends countrywide) is one of the strongest in the nation, and immediately started campaigning against the move.
