Black & Pink is an open family of LGBTQ prisoners and “free world” allies who support each other. Their work towards the abolition of the prison industrial complex is rooted in the experience of currently and formerly incarcerated people. Outraged by the specific violence of the prison industrial complex against LGBTQ people, they respond through advocacy, education, direct service, and organizing.

We know that those most hurt by the violence of the prison industrial complex have the knowledge of how to tear it down.
