Dont's Medical Care & Recovery

Donation protected
Dont Rhine, a co-founder and leading organizer of the Los Angeles Tenants Union, and a remarkable artist, teacher, writer and warrior for justice on many fronts, is recovering from a sudden life-threatening illness that involved open heart surgery, several weeks hospitalization. While prospects for his full recovery are excellent, he will require several months of recuperation and therapy. Health insurance requires considerable co-pays and "shared" costs, and there will be other necessary expenses during this time when he cannot work. We want him to concentrate on his recovery without having to worry about how to afford it. We want you back, Dont and we have your back!

Any donations made to this page will still be received by Dont. But there is more up-to-date information on the new one. Thank you so much for your support.
