Help End Mass Incarceration

In 1995 I was forced into an illegal drug ring by a very prominent political figure in Guam. He used my business to import illegal substance into Guam. Through false advice from my Attorney in Guam that I would get 14 years if I turned in the “political figure” I ended up receiving a 40 year federal conviction.

Due to Covid-19 I was released from Prison into a homeless status with absolutely no friends, no family, no finances. And as a black transwoman back in California -after 26 years- requires me to be a functional part of society again. Although the resources are plentiful, I am still in dire need of future support.  It’s scary and exciting to be back among society; but, now, I call upon you -amid the change of presidential leadership- to assist me with a prolific endeavor.

I am fundraising for the rights of citizens at the onset of their arrest; to the guarantee of a fair trial; to end mass incarceration; to compel the director of the federal Bureau of Prisons to immediately enact additional programs that'll help and ensure that prisoners are armed with all the necessary documentations that they'll need upon reintegration of society (i.e. state ID, SSN card, GED, and birth certificate; and finally, to provide housing and financial stability and employment opportunity for those who are in need upon release.

The actions and plans that I intend to implement will require absolutely no legislative permission. This mission will be solely and exclusively carried out by you, civilians, taxpayers. The funds will be used for programs and housing and opening up bank accounts for each individual to get a head start or a foot in the door for successful reintegration.

My organization: SOS decarceration is a new vision on the way that prison reform needs to be implemented. With your help prisoners will not only receive a second chance but will also receive a greater chance to avoid recidivism. So, I ask you to join me in this quest to abolish mass incarceration and begin the rehabilitation efforts needed for those who are soon to be released from prisons. I appreciate your time your attention and your donations gifts are charities.
