About Us and the Sustainer Program.

The Prison Books Collective is a Chapel Hill, NC-based anti-prison group that sends hundreds of books to prisoners in the South each month, maintains an extensive radical ‘zine catalog, widely distributes a monthly poster promoting political prisoner support, and publishes prisoners’ art and writing. We also work to raise awareness about the prison-industrial complex in our own community and connect with others seeking to abolish this brutally racist and repressive system.

Our group is entirely volunteer-run and subsists week to week on the donations of supporters.

To be able continue this work, we started a fundraising initiative called the monthly sustainer program. Supporters can now sign up at our website to have a small sum securely and automatically deducted from their bank account or credit card each month. Just $10/month can send over a hundred more books into prison each year. Every single dollar received from sustainers goes to mailing packages of books in to prisoners. We rely solely on donations for our operating expenses, which primarily include the cost of postage for mailing packages.

We are currently spending about $400 per month on postage alone (in addition we have monthly rent for our space), and are in desperate need of support.

    This is so unbelievably amazing! I am a second year graduate student at UNCG and we are working on the States of Incarceration Exhibit. This literally gives me hope for reform. We are opening our exhibit in Greensboro, on November 11th and 12th at the International Civil Rights Center and Museum. If there is any chance you might be interested in coming, or any way we can help you all, let me know!
