Jared’s birthday is coming up on June 12th, so send him a card today to show your support and solidarity! This will be the second birthday he has spent locked up in Cook County Jail fighting these politically motivated charges. Our friends at the Chapel Hill Prison Books Collective have issued the June calendar of Political Prisoner Birthdays, so you can easily find info and addresses on Jared and other political prisoners with June birthdays:
Jared and his co-defendants Brent Betterly and Brian Church could also use more books. Brent likes history, science, politically sharp philosophy, sci-fi, fantasy, and horror. Brian is in to fantasy, Star Wars, anything to do with video games, and stuff about the Dark Ages. And Jared likes anything to do with technology, sci-fi, fantasy, and history. Addresses can be found on our Contact page.
