Why Donate?

IWW prisoners led a 3 week prison strike in Texas this April. IWW members participated in the 10 day strike led by the Free Alabama Movement this May. IWW members on the inside are leaders in the Sept 9th Strike Call. Prison slavery’s days are numbered if we can create a mass movement on the outside to expand and support the leaders on the inside. Since our beginnings two years ago we have grown to a movement of prisoners, with 800 members in 36 states. Read how prisoners are organizing in their own words here.

Your donations will allow us to continue to expand our nationwide infrastructure to amplify prisoner voices inside and out, win demands and stop abuse, and work to abolish prison slavery and a society that needs prisons. IWOC is part of a mass movement going on in prisons – we need your help.

Core projected expenses include:

  • Postage and mailing costs ($15,000/year)
  • Traveling organizers/events to support mass strikes and grow prison chapters ($50,000/year)
  • Conference funds to connect and grow our movement nationally ($5,000/year)
