1. THE HEARINGS ARE SCHEDULED!
April 28-Monday-10AM-4PM.
Illinois House Prison Reform Committee Hearings on Tamms
James R. Thompson Center, 100 W. Randolph, Chicago, IL 60601

Having the hearings set is a big step forward–now we can channel everyone at every event to attend the hearings!

2. ANNIVERSARY EVENT SCHEDULED!
Tamms letter-writing event and kick-off for Supermax Subscriptions.
March 8–Saturday–6PM-8:30PM.

Mess Hall. 6932 N Glenwood Ave, Chicago, IL 60626
The new project called Supermax Subscriptions is a collaboration between Temporary Services, Tamms Poetry Committee and Sara Ross. Supermax Subscriptions asks people to use their surplus frequent flyer miles to give the gift of a yearly magazine subscription to a person in a supermax prison–we are starting with Tamms.

If anyone wants to schedule a little music for this event, we could be entertained while we sign letters!

3. STATEVILLE SPEAKS totally dedicated to Tamms.
The publication written in collaboration between prisoners and the outside is dedicating a short special March issue to Tamms. All our events and endorsers are listed. This is a great publication–it engages with complex and challenging subjects–and free to prisoners. (If you aren’t subscribed, tell us.) The edition that just came out is about the impact of crime on victims.

4. BLUES AND JAZZ POSTER.
Dean Rank made us a beautiful poster for the blues/jazz benefit and Screwball Press screened it for free. Thank you! All organized by Tom and Kent.
