With hundreds of thousands of folks across the country taking the streets to make the demand to #AbolishICE, NYC ABC invites you to support others held captive by the state. For this week’s political prisoner letter-writing dinner, we are writing to Rayquan Borum.

Rayquan Borum was arrested during the Black Lives Matter uprising in Charlotte, North Carolina. Revolutionaries in the city firmly believe he is falsely being accused of murdering a young man, in a cover up attempt by the “authorities.”

If for what ever reason you can’t make it out to write Rayquan in the company of fellow anarchists and vegan food, we hope you’ll still find some time to write to him here:
Rayquan Borum #0000400226
Mecklenburg County Jail
Post Office Box 34429
Charlotte, North Carolina 28234

The deal, as always, is that you come bringing only yourself (and your friends and comrades), and we provide you with a delicious vegan meal, information about the prisoners as well as all of the letter-writing materials and prisoner-letter-writing info you could ever want to use in one evening. In return, you write a thoughtful letter to a political prisoner or prisoner of war of your choosing or, better yet, keep up a long-term correspondence. We’ll also provide some brief updates and pass around birthday cards for the PP/POWs whose birthdays fall in the next two weeks thanks to the PP/POW Birthday Calendar.
