Incarcerated Solidarity Fund

This is a general fund for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people affiliated with the Southern California Branch of the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee (SoCal IWOC). With your donation, SoCal IWOC will be able to provide material aid to the many people we care for behind bars and those who have been released. The general fund will pay for emails, phone calls, envelopes, books, writing materials, and commissary items of incarcerated people. This fund will also pay for food, water, snacks, hand sanitizer, as well as facemasks that we give to formerly incarcerated people upon their release. We want the incarcerated and formerly incarcerated to get themselves what they need.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, SoCal IWOC has been in contact with dozens of comrades held in captivity throughout the state. With the emergence and spread of the novel coronavirus, jails and prisons across the country have been the hardest hit. Nationwide, there are tens of thousands of confirmed cases and hundreds of deaths. In California, the rate of infection in jails and prisons is 6 times greater than the state's rate of infection. Meanwhile, the carceral system has responded with gross negligence and coordinated apathy. As a result, incarcerated people have been deprived of visitations, phone calls, hot meals, and other essentials. Now more than ever people in cages need support. 

The Incarcerated Solidarity Fund will not only furnish aid to incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people here and now, it will back our friends well after the pandemic has passed. Before COVID-19, everyone locked up was put through hell and back. After the coronavirus, we suspect everything will remain the same, unless we do something about it. Please consider donating. 

From beyond the wall,

SoCal IWOC
