Petri Dish, USA - Kim and Vicky

Vicky Scroggins has a heart of gold. Her fiancé, Eric Bowman, is currently incarcerated in Tennessee. Eric is generally a skeptical guy, but a recently incarcerated man named Ron won his trust. Unfortunately, Ron’s family is struggling. Without an economic anchor, his wife Tammy and her two children Elizabeth (8mo) and Faith (2yrs) have been left homeless. Tammy is a hardworking and diligent woman, but times have been tough for her. Out of the goodness of her heart, Vicky Scroggins has just welcomed Ron's family into her own home. Vicky is working to raise funds to get Tammy back on her feet and in a place of her own. Incarceration disrupts the lives of millions behind bars. But it also disrupts millions of families on the outside. Neglected by an unjust system, Tammy is struggling to provide for her two young girls and Vicky is helping her do that. Please consider donating to help a family torn apart by incarceration.
Dr. Kimberly Muktarian is a fighter. Her brother, Brian Bronson, has been in and out of a jail cell his entire life. But instead of throwing her hands up, Miss Kim set out to make things right. In 2010, she started Save Our Sons, a non-profit dedicated to bringing peace and justice to America’s underserved Black communities. Today she needs your help. Dr. Muktarian–or Miss Kim as most call her–is launching a new campaign. The Let My People Go Campaign will lobby Congress to pass progressive legislation countering the lingering effects of the War on Drugs. In the era of opioid addiction, America has largely forgotten the lives affected by Crack and our government’s ultra-punitive response to it. Miss Kim aims to recenter the national conversation and ensure that America doesn’t forget the millions of Black Americans experiencing addiction or incarceration. Please consider donating to help Miss Kim hold our government accountable.
GoFundMe donations will be split evenly between Vicky Scroggins and Dr. Kimberly Muktarian.
