Prisoners Literature Project (PLP)

Address   Grassroots House
          2022 Blake Street
          Berkeley, CA  94704

An inclusive, all-volunteer, grassroots nonprofit whose purpose is to encourage reading, the pursuit of knowledge, and self-determination among incarcerated people. By sending free reading materials to those behind bars, PLP aims to foster learning and critical thinking and help prepare people to lead successful lives after incarceration. We believe that all people have a right to read.

We recognize that many incarcerated people lack formal education, and the PLP strives to remedy that by providing books that impart knowledge. We also provide genre fiction because we understand that incarcerated people need to pass the time. Through the books that we send, we demonstrate that there are many possibilities for how to live.
