Having problems with what to send or write about? click on the individuals at the top for more information! At the end of the day, even short messages help to remind prisoners of the large number of supporters they have on the outside, and the great efforts for the animals so many others continue to take across the globe.

Federal prisoners are permitted to receive a very small variety of items from "the outside". Inmates are allowed to receive an unlimited number of cards, letters, and photographs (but no Polaroids) from anyone. They may also receive magazines and periodicals, but these must come directly from the publisher (i.e. by way of a subscription directly to the prisoner); magazines and periodicals sent from anyone other than the publisher will be refused. Inmates are not permitted to receive any publication that contains material of a sexual nature; magazines containing sexual material will be destroyed.

What you Can Send: Photos (no polaroids), cards, letters, postcards, and photocopied materials.

You Can't Send: postage, envelopes, blank paper, polaroids, food, care packages, stickers, news clippings. (you cannot send books or magazines from home, but may send them directly from the publisher)

SENDING LETTERS

Please write the defendants in prison! They would love to hear from you and need the support. A couple of things to remember:

  • All mail is opened and read by prison officials.
  • Do not discuss the specifics of the case. All of the SHAC 7 defendants are appealing their convictions and, as such, they all still retain their Fifth Amendment rights to protect them in the event they are granted a new trial.
  • Mail can be sent first class, priority, or express.

You can also email letters to the defendants. None of the defendants have access to email, but the emails are printed out by supporters and mailed to the prisons. So if you would like a response, include a mailing address!

SENDING BOOKS

There is very little to do in prison, and reading tends to be one of the best ways to pass the time and stave off boredom. Prisoners will often read more books than any one of us with lives full of activism, jobs, and social activities could imagine. Before sending a book, please check each individual's website and/or email to make sure they are currently allowed to receive books. Each prisoner is limited on the number of books they can receive at any one time.

Books must be sent via Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble or directly from a publisher. They must be softcover. Most prisons (with the exception of camps) do not allow books to be sent in from an individual.
