Help Zolo Rebuild His Life
Zolo will exit prison practically penniless and will face enormous financial challenges. He will need to pay for housing, food, clothing, transportation, furniture, a cell phone, utilities, and the many other expenses we all encounter.
Zolo will seek employment but at the present time he has little savings. He has been paid $.35 an hour during most of the time he has worked inside Indiana’s prisons.
Let’s ease Zolo’s path and make sure he does not confront his financial challenges—and all the challenges he will face--alone. Please donate generously.
Zolo is alive today due to his efforts and the work of his supporters and a strong legal team. The Indiana Supreme Court twice reversed his death penalty conviction due to racially discriminatory practices that occurred during the trial process.
Zolo is a jailhouse lawyer. He has done legal work on his own behalf and for other inmates. He has acquired a paralegal certificate and has gained an associate degree by completing 2 years of college work.
In spite of his difficult circumstances, Zolo is a positive person with a quick smile and a vibrant laugh. Let’s answer his positivity with support.
All funds will go directly to Zolo and will be deposited into a fund managed by me, Howie Emmer. Along with others, I have visited and supported Zolo for 13 years. For more information contact: zoloazania.org and Chicago Committee to Free Black Political Prisoners on Facebook.
Thank you in advance for your generosity.
Zolo Azania is a friend of mine. I have been visiting Zolo in prison and, along with others, providing him with moral, political, and financial support, for the past 13 years. The funds raised from this GoFundMe campaign are deposited into a savings account I opened in my name. The account serves the sole purpose of holding the funds for Zolo. Zolo is scheduled to be released from prison in February 2017 and, when he is released and is able to open a bank account in his name, I will transfer the funds into his bank account. Thanks so much for your contributions!
