About


NC-PLWC is a solidarity network for mailing projects across walls & abolitionist community organizing. A subset of NC-PLWC is a mutual aid group that tables political education materials and does weekly resource distribution. 

Our concurrent projects include ongoing letter writing as a form of solidarity with incarcerated folks, as well as fundraising to sustain our community-organized warming center at the Bryn Mawr red line stop in the Edgewater neighborhood of Chicago. This informal network has emerged as a means to address the needs of populations that the state continues to treat as disposable. We operate under the principles of direct wealth redistribution and bottom-up leadership, recognizing that the oppressed know best how to address their needs; thus, funds are given directly to housing insecure peoples. We currently table every Saturday at the Bryn Mawr train stop to distribute money, PPE, hot breakfast, tents, warm
clothes, toiletries, and other items.
