After 9 years in locked up, Lauren Stumblingbear lost a lot, including her mother to Covid. Let's reassure "Bear" that she will have resources and community when she returns this July.
Thank you, generous supporters! We're exceed our goal of 1,500 and are raising a bit more to be sure Bear can
meet release with a bit more confidence. Release is HARD, as much as it is hoped for and celebrated. It returns old anxieties and brings new ones, in part because there is so much too do---after years of waiting, release "to-do" lists bring needs that must be met all at once. Every donation and each message of solidarity helps! Thanks so much for this and for all you do!
Thank you, generous supporters! We're hoping to reach our $1,500 goal well before July 1, so we can give the funds to Lauren when we meet her at Logan CC, and drive her to her first non-prison meal in over 9 years, and a store to pick out some essentials! Without this support, release for Lauren, and so many others, is a bus or train ticket to the station nearest their parole site, and a discretionary $20-$50. That's it.
So, thank you, each and all, for helping to make a much gentler and supportive re-entry happen, and if you can, please share the fundraiser link with your networks to maximize impact!
