Allyson Proulx leads a collective of volunteers with a shared commitment toward working against the harms perpetuated by the criminal legal system and to breaking the silence and isolation that occurs when folks are incarcerated. They are dedicated to social justice, anti-racism, and freedom and they believe in the right to dignity and humanity for all.
Penn2Paper is a platonic prison pen pal service. As a collective we began working together in February 2021 to establish Penn2Paper. The program went live in the summer of 2021, and to date, they have 124 sets of matched pen pals.
