From Prisoners Revolutionary Literature Fund:

Donate to Send BAsics to Prisoners

NOW IS THE TIME to raise the final $15,500 to meet PRLF’s goal of 2000 copies of BAsics to prisoners. While about 450 prisoners have received BAsics (including all who requested the book in California) many more eagerly await their copy. The prisoners’ response to BAsics has been extraordinary. NOW IS THE TIME for an extraordinary effort by those outside the prison walls—to donate generously, spread the word to others and find creative ways to collectively meet this goal.


$10 covers one copy of BAsics and shipping to a prisoner
