Prisoners Literature Project

IMPORTANT: PLP suspending volunteer sessions.

March 2020  |  Published in Announcements, Latest News

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Prisoner Literature Project is suspending Wednesday and Sunday volunteer sessions until further notice.

This is due to a new California declaration that ‘smaller events can proceed only if the organizers can implement social distancing of 6 feet per person’. In our cramped space, it is unfortunately not possible to do that.

(Details on the executive order: https://www.gov.ca.gov/2020/03/12/governor-newsom-issues-new-executive-order-further-enhancing-state-and-local-governments-ability-to-respond-to-covid-19-pandemic/.)

We hope to be back to normal soon, and thanks everyone for supporting us during this difficult time.
