Jason Renard Walker is a published writer, activist and organizer located in the Texas prison system. In the past year Jason has been under a constant campaign of harassment, retaliation and physical assault by prison guards, which was in response to his published writings criticizing prison conditions. 

Most notably, Jason subsequently gets transferred from one prison to the next as a corporal form of punishment as well as to thwart his effort to organize with other prisoners. At each prison he has faced illegal cell searches, resulting in the theft and destruction of his legal work for pending civil rights violations. 

By supporting Jason you are supporting his effort to continue his activism and organizing. Your donation will have an impact on exposing corrupt prison staff and having these individuals reprimanded or  face legal consequences for their actions. With the help of an attorney for Jason, you can also help him win an induction against retaliation for his writings as well as restore his eligibility to make parole this June.

Jason has such an important voice that exposes the truth of what really goes on in the Texas prison system. By investing your dollars in Jason, you will be investing in the very worthy causes that make up his activist work such as bridging the gap that separates prisoners and the community, creating unity amongst prisoners nationwide, to change prison conditions that are neglected and to also bring awareness to the misconduct that the incarcerated suffer day-in and day-out. 

In his most recent  assault by racist guards on Nov. 23, 2018 at the Ellis Unit, a bogus disciplinary assault case was written against him to conceal the event. On Aug 23 2018 while at the Telford Unit, he was written a false report for threatening to assault staff. He was locked up in solitary the day of the hearing which prevented him from attending the hearing. This case was ultimately overturned and expunged but he was written a second false case and was never notified he’d received the charge. During an investigation by the Houston Chronicle  it was exposed that the prison counsel substitute Shelia Forte falsified records to frame Jason with the case. She was fired for this act and faces criminal felony charges. Jason has a pending lawsuit on many of these issues. 

He is seeking donations in effort to obtain meaningful legal assistance to better his chances of battling the defendants, their legal team, and the judge who are acting in concert to get his claims dismissed. Even though his civil rights have been clearly violated, attorneys in Texas have no interest in justice, only in collecting fees for legal help. With the help of a lawyer, Jason will have a fighting chance.
