Protect Whistleblower Dawn Wooten

Here's a video of me with Ms. Wooten and her legal representation, demonstrating that this fundraiser is legitimate: https://twitter.com/jifueko/status/1306712283515478016?

Nurse Dawn Wooten recently revealed that ICE is performing mass hysterectomies on undocumented immigrants kept in federal custody. Whistleblowing, especially as a Black woman, comes with enormous risks, and it is overwhelmingly likely that she faces backlash, harassment and physical harm.

This fundraiser is intended to raise enough money for Ms. Wooten to install a security feature for her place of residence ($2,000) and 6+ months of private security (priced at $35/hr, 20 hrs a week: $13,000). However, if Ms. Wooten needs the funds for something else, such as a legal team or even everyday support after giving up her job to reveal this corruption, she is free to use the funds as she wishes.

Every cent will go to Ms. Wooten. She has sole access to these funds. To reach her, contact her organizational reps, The Government Accountability Project & Project South.
