Dear Supporters, this spring join us every two weeks to take action to free incarcerated survivors by submitting public comment to Governor Gavin Newsom!
In the last week of #WomensHistoryMonth, please join us on Thurs. March 25th for a Day of Action to Bring Brandy Scott home and #FreeAllSurvivors. We are urging Governor Newsom to grant immediate release for Brandy Scott through a commutation.
Brandy Scott is a 43-year-old Black trans woman and criminalized survivor of domestic violence. She has a 22-year sentence and already served her base term, but is still incarcerated due to a gun enhancement. Like thousands of incarcerated trans and gender nonconforming survivors, Brandy also faces consistent and targeted transphobic violence by prison guards. As deadly COVID-19 outbreaks continue in California prisons, we are concerned for her ongoing safety for the duration of her sentence. Brandy is a beloved friend and long-time member of Survived & Punished and TGI Justice Project, and she deserves healing – not more punishment.
We invite you to join us in calling for Brandy’s release. Please take action on Thurs., March 25:
