Black and Pink PDX- Remote Pen Pal Matching
Hello! Thank you for your interest in joining our Oregon specific pen-pal program. We launched this new system for people outside of prisons to match with our inside members (LGBTQ+ and/or HIV-Positive people incarcerated in Oregon prisons).

Through this form, you will learn about guidelines and expectations for having an incarcerated LGBTQ+ and/or HIV-Positive pen-pal, and then you'll get a chance to sift through the bios that our inside members have shared about themselves. After you've chosen your pen-pal, we will send you your new pen-pal's address and you can get started with your first letter! That email will also include all of the information in this form for your reference.

Completing this form and getting matched with a pen-pal entails mostly reviewing information and reflecting. If you're new to corresponding with an incarcerated pen-pal, or even if you're not, we ask that you take your time to review these guidelines thoroughly. We promise you'll learn a lot about being an awesome pen-pal! It is reading heavy, however we have an audio option embedded in this form too.

This form has been adapted from resources shared by Black and Pink National, the Prisoner Correspondence Project, and our experiences as pen-pals in Oregon.

If you're located outside of Oregon, you can check out to find a pen-pal in any of the other states.

Great! We invite you to treat this form like a guide, rather than a test. Before moving to the next section, make sure to review all the information present. We will share resources with you after you complete this form too so don't worry about memorizing everything here! We really appreciate you taking some time to learn how to be an awesome pen-pal! *
