WPBP is a volunteer-run, non-profit that sends books and reading materials to incarcerated women and trans people all over the country. As a group, we will help pack book orders based on the individual requests of folks who have been incarcerated. Not only does this provide a vital service to folks who have limited access to resources, it can also be a great way to connect with your fellow students, support an incredible local organization, and practice a little bit of reader’s advisory (depending on the requests!).
