Jeremy needs our continued support. He needs funds for commissary, but he also needs broader help: since March 2012, Jeremy has been cut off from his friends and family, and punished with extensive stays in solitary confinement – treatment normally reserved for the most egregious offences. His defence team needs financial support to continue advocating on his behalf, monitoring his condition and fighting for his rights while in prison. Donating is the easiest, fastest and most tangible way you can support Jeremy now: click here to donate.
2. Write to Jeremy
Please let Jeremy know his friends and supporters on the outside are thinking of him. You can brighten his day for only the cost of a stamp. Jeremy enjoys reading letters of support and news from the outside world, as his communication with the outside world is strictly limited. Jeremy also gratefully receives articles and books.

3. Send Jeremy a book
Jeremy is an avid reader – books are a lifeline for him, keeping his mind occupied and connecting him to the outside world. There is a lot of ‘down time’ in prison and reading greatly helps to pass the time. Jeremy enjoys everything from graphic novels to autobiographies to political works. We have compiled an Amazon Wishlist of books that Jeremy has either directly requested or on topics we know Jeremy enjoys. To find out how to send Jeremy books, please click here.
PLEASE NOTE: Jeremy can no longer receive books where he is currently incarcerated. We thank everyone that has sent him books over the years. Books have been a vital lifeline to Jeremy, and are so important to all prisoners. Please consider donating to your local Books Through Bars chapter to help get books into the hands of prisoners who desperately need them. If you do not have a local Books Through Bars chapter, please visit Chicago Books to Women in Prison, DC Books to Prisons, Seattle Books to Prisoners, Books Through Bars Philly, Prison Book Program, or NYC Books Through Bars to find out how you can help!
4. Write to prisoners
To anyone incarcerated, a letter of support or just a friendly greeting can make a great difference. Jeremy feels great solidarity with fellow political prisoners. Visit the NYC Anarchist Black Cross website to find a prisoner guide filled with names and addresses of political prisoners and prisoners of conscience whose day would be immeasurably brightened by some love from outside prison walls.
