The Avis Lee Decarceration Fund

Let's Get Free is excited to announce the Avis Lee Decarceration Fund! Avis Lee WILL be coming home from prison after 40 years this fall and we want to make her transition as supportive as possible. SO CHIP IN FOR THE CO-CREATOR OF LET'S GET FREE! You can read more about her on our website: https://letsgetfree.info.

On September 4th, Avis received a unanimous 5 yes votes from the Board of Pardons. We now wait for the governor to sign her application after which she should be home to Pittsburgh soon. There is no time frame in which the governor has to sign - it could be one month to 6 months.

Avis Lee also has a kitchen wish list which we will be sharing soon so she can realize her dreams of opening a vegetarian soul food truck.  Pittsburgh needs that!!!

We are intending to raise $10, 000 for Avis' homecoming but the fund will remain active and be used to support others in the decarceration process. We just upped our goal to raise money for Avis' position at Let's Get Free. Support us in hiring our first employee at a generous hourly wage. (30% goes to the state until she is able to move out of the CC center)

Let's Get Free is proud to support many people coming home. We do this by giving funds directly to people to use for parole costs, court fees, rent, bus passes, unexpected medical costs, beds, computers and just some random cash with no strings attached.

Any amount is precious. We appreciate you more than you know.

SOLIDARITY FOREVER
