Mission Statement

To provide quality reading material free of charge to people in prisons across the United States. To promote literacy and education among those in prison. To facilitate social change, self-empowerment, and rehabilitation in the prison system.

Description

The Prisoners Literature Project is a grassroots organization that sends books to prisoners in the United States free of charge. Our clients are indigent prison inmates with limited access to books. We send them books because we believe that everyone should have the chance to read. Books can change lives. The project is an all-volunteer effort that mainly relies on donations of books and postage money in order to function. The project is located in the Grassroots House at 2022 Blake Street in Berkeley, California. It operates in partnership with Bound Together Books and the Grassroots House.
