How to Support Katie

Please write to Katie!

One of the most important ways to show support for folks on the inside is to write letters. Prison can be extremely isolating and lonely. We want to do everything we can to keep Katie as connected to her community and supporters as possible.

There are a few ways you can send letters to Katie.

  1. Organize a letter writing event to write letters to Katie together (and other political prisoners too if you want)
  2. Take a moment in your day and send Katie a letter!
  3. If it is easier for you to send Katie an email – write an email to lettersforkatie@riseup.net and we will print it out and put it in an envelope and send it off to Katie. Make sure to include your physical address in your email if you want Katie to be able to respond. Katie has limited and costly access to internet- please don’t try to email Katie directly.

If you have never written a letter to someone in prison, or want a reminder of some tips, take a look at this guide: https://nycabc.wordpress.com/write-a-letter/

If you still have questions about the specific mail restrictions for Katie, feel free to email us.

Although Katie may not be able to respond to all of her mail immediately, every correspondence is incredibly appreciated. Any letter that goes in to prison is a reminder that we take political prisoners seriously, that we refuse to forget about folks on the inside.

Send Katie a book!

Below is a list of books that Katie would like to receive. If you send a book to Katie, please let us know and we will keep this list updated.

Remember that Katie can only receive books directly from a publisher.

In addition to ordering her books through Amazon, you can order Katie books at a discount for political prisoners from AK Press and Combustion Books.

You can also send books to Katie through any books-to-prisoner projects around you.

Keep donating!

We are still raising money for Katie’s ongoing legal support. We also need money to maintain Katie’s commissary and funds for telephone and internet access. All donations, no matter how small, make a difference. Since we may need money over a long period of time, we encourage folks to make recurring monthly donations if they are able. You can make recurring donations through PayPal by checking the “Make this recurring (Monthly)” box (beside “Donation Amount”) after clicking here.

None of Katie’s supporters are being paid for their work – all of this money goes directly towards Katie.
