About Us

Based in Asheville, NC, Tranzmission Prison Project (TPP) is one of a growing number of LGBTQ-focused prison abolition/advocacy groups in the US. We are a volunteer-run, non-hierarchical organization, and provide free books, zines, prisoner resources, and various other means of support to incarcerated folks nation wide.

We believe that, in the words of Reina Gossett, “people who [are] queer and trans [are] particularly vulnerable to state violence.” TPP offers support and resources solely to folks who fall under the LGBTQ umbrella, as well as women and people incarcerated in women’s facilities. There are many nation-wide organizations and prison books projects that offer support to all incarcerated folks; you can find info about those comrades on our “Groups We Love” page.

Want to network with us, have us table at your event, or stage a workshop? Are you interested in our many volunteer opportunities, donate to our work, or are just curious about hearing more about the project? We’d love to hear from you! Check out our contact page to get in touch.
