Dear supporters of Miss Major,

THANK YOU all so much for your generous donations--monthly and one-time--to make sure Miss Major has what she needs to thrive and do her powerful work in Little Rock, Arkansas. She is so moved by this circle of care, and so are we. Since launching this in May 2013, we have collectively raised over $130,000 for her. That's $26,000 per year! Community!

We have some important news: GoFundMe no longer allows for monthly donations, so we are MOVING Miss Major's Monthly Fundraising Circle to Fundly. The new site is fundly.com/missmajor.

We are going to launch this new site publicly TODAY because it is MISS MAJOR'S BIRTHDAY! October 25th! Will you kick off the celebration by heading over to fundly.com/missmajor and signing up to be a *monthly* donor today? And then post a photo of you with a "Happy Birthday Miss Major!" sign? Be sure to post with #missmajor.

Thank you for your amazing dedication to Major. Together we can continue to make sure she has what she needs through her elder years!

Love,

Morgan Bassichis, Wriply Bennet, Caitlin Breedlove, Woods Ervin, StormMiguel Florez, Gabriel Foster, Elliott Fukui, Pooja Gehi, Joss Greene, Paulina Helm-Hernandez, Iimay Ho, Vanessa Huang, Malachi Larrabee-Garza, Alex Lee, Colby Lenz, Dori Midnight, Chani Nicholas, Annalise Ophelian, Una Aya Osato, Nat Smith, Dean Spade, Tourmaline, Alok Vaid-Menon, danielle marilyn west, Beck Witt, Luke Woodward

From TGI Justice Project:

For almost a decade, our Executive Director Miss Major Griffin-Gracy has been a powerful force of love and leadership within the TGI Justice Project family and international liberation movements. Her tireless work fighting for TGI people in prisons, jails, and detention centers has changed the national discussion around mass incarceration and our communities. Miss Major has positively impacted the lives of countless people.

At 73 years of age, following a lifetime of struggle and dedication to this work, Miss Major has decided to retire her position as Executive Director at TGI Justice. We're excited to announce that TGIJP Program Director Janetta Johnson, Miss Major's daughter and protégé, will be leading TGI Justice in the next chapter of our critical work.

We like to share these words from Miss Major:

“I want to thank you all for working with me and being part of the transitions and changes we’ve gone through at TGIJP over the years. And I want to assure you that while I’m stepping down as Executive Director, my mouth is not stepping down and I will continue to bitch and let people know what my community is going through. It's difficult living in our truth, but what better way to survive? It's important that we survive; we've got to come out on top. Please continue to support and back up Janetta for taking on the responsibility of taking TGIJP into the next phase. Wish her well and help her prosper. Be safe and stay strong."

We hope you will celebrate Miss Major's incredible legacy and retirement by joining in the circle of people who ensure she has the access and resources she needs on her journey through her elder years.

Thank you to the folks who have been giving over the last two years! Thank you and welcome to the new members of the giving circle and the one time donors as well. Thank you for supporting her as much as she has supported us all!

Thank you everyone for your generous and consistent support for our beloved elder, Miss Major. It is powerful to see our collective outpouring of support over the past 11 months.

Unfortunately, this past week Miss Major's apartment caught fire and almost all of her personal belongings were severely damaged. Thankfully, she and her pooch Moose were unharmed. She is currently looking for a new place to live, and once she is able to re-establish permanent housing, she's going to need support to refurnish her home in addition to simply covering her monthly bills, health costs, etc.

Please help by inviting your friends and networks to join this circle, increasing your monthly donation, or making an additional one-time donation. Because we take care of our own.

Email majorlovetime (at) gmail.com with any questions. Thank you for continuing to support Major through her elder years!

Hello folks. My wife and I bought a camp trailer a year or so ago. We didn't know who she was at the time, but we bought it from Miss Major! Now we're ready to sell it. (We never wound up fixing it up, and it's only been used as a playhouse by our kids.) Our plan is to sell it and donate all the proceeds back to Miss Major. We're making a Facebook page about it now, and we'll let you know when it's done, OK? Jason Pontius (and Kate Schatz)
