As part of the National Lawyers Guild's recognition of the Week Against Mass Incarceration, Duke's NLG chapter will be hosting a letter-writing event where students can write letters to inmates. Many inmates have become out of sight, out of mind to their family and friends, and receiving a letter at mail call can lift spirits, let the inmate know that they are not alone, and help eliminate the monotony that goes along with being incarcerated. Students can choose to provide their contact information if they would like to begin a pen-pal correspondence, or they can write anonymously. NLG will provide supplies. Sponsored by the National Lawyers Guild. For more information, please contact Hannah Elson at
