Medical Assistance for Dorie Ladner

Donation protected
My name is Yodit Churnet, daughter of civil rights icon, Dorie Ladner. Dorie Ladner is at a critical time of her life and is in urgent need of home healthcare assistance. She suffered a stroke and was struck with cancer and underwent a mastectomy. She is also suffering from debilitating back problems such as arthritis and spinal stenosis (surgery in October 2023) and is still in recovery. She wants to stay in her home to recover and needs your help.

Dorie’s brothers and sisters from the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and the 1960s Freedom Movement are reaching out to each other to support her financially. Dorie Ladner joined the Movement as a teenager, and has been working for human and civil rights in this country for over 60 years. America is a much more democratic society because of the sacrifices made by Dorie to end racial segregation. Millions of African Americans throughout the South are now able to vote and participate in determining the direction of America because of her contributions.

Please find it in your heart to support her financially. Please give as much as you can. Your contribution is critical and very much appreciated.
