Help us raise bail for one of our community members and sisters who is involved with the Solutions not Punishment Coalition, who was arrested and jailed on two petty city offenses last week!
Over a week ago, one of our community members and sisters who is involved with the Solutions not Punishment Coalition, was arrested and jailed on two petty city offenses that are commonly used to target, criminalize, and harass trans women of color and survival sex workers in this city. We are keeping her name and identity private.
One of the charges was what is commonly known as “idling and loitering”. The other charge was “Pedestrian walking in a roadway”, which has since been dropped. Since she has been arrested, she has been inside the city jail and we are trying to raise the bail money so we can get her out, which is $1100. We know, as CeCe McDonald, Janet Mock, and Laverne Cox have all shared in various news outlets recently, that jails and prisons aren’t safe for anyone, and especially not for trans women.
Please help us raise the money by donating here and spreading the word. If you can’t donate some $, please spread the word and help us get our sister and comrade free. Thank you!
It is incredibly, incredibly important that this woman get bailed ASAP. If you have any money to spare, please please PLEASE donate to get her out.
