This situation has caused a sudden and extreme financial and emotional hardship, one that could threaten her being able to keep her housing in a ruthless Oakland housing crisis. She needs our financial and moral support to navigate the next two months (February-March) to cover her rent and take time off from work while she advocates for her beautiful son/sun. She also needs a lawyer who would be willing to work pro bono and who has experience with fighting the state over SSI benefits. She also needs someone who is willing to go with her to appointments while she navigates this situation. We need to step up as a community for a sister/mother who has been making powerful art, doing amazing spiritual work, and is an important part of our Oakland community. Give what you can and help this sister/mother! Let’s support a beautiful member of our Oakland family!
