Why this auction?

The auction has closed but if you still want to donate, we are accepting email money transfer to payments@batsp.ca ❤️

We are raising money for Book Clubs for Inmates, TPRP‘s COVID-19 Emergency Prisoner Support Fund, and CPEP‘s Jail Accountability & Information Line (JAIL) because of conditions in prison under the Canadian state. What follows are some basic statistics about our prisons; this information is distressing and may be especially so for members of communities affected by mass incarceration.

This fundraiser was organized by a non-Black BIPOC settler to show solidarity with those who have experienced violence at the hands of the state where I live, create, and raise my family. All books were donated directly by the authors. As writers our work involves bearing witness to our world; this fundraiser is an extension of that.

Thank you to Naiomi Perera for the beautiful graphics, to the FOLD for media outreach advice, to Shane Murphy for the pro bono help with the fine print.

Thank you to TPRP and CPEP for their extensive advice and support.
