Boston Eat for Equity: Prison Book Programposted: Tuesday, October 28th, 2014
Eat for Equity Boston is happy to announce our latest fundraising community dinner, which will support Prison Book Program and its 40+ year mission of sending free books to inmates all over the country.
Originally organized by the Red Book Store Collective in Cambridge in 1972, the PBP first concentrated on distributing progressive literature. As word spread, the materials offered broadened in scope. Since 1988, PBP has created and distributed the National Prisoner Resource List, and currently disseminates a Legal Primer, dictionaries, information about preparing for the GED and books in several languages. PBP serves thousands of prisoners every year by working to fulfill their requests.
