Community support — including financial support for legal defense and basic needs, and public demonstrations of support through petitions or court watches — is an act of solidarity and can make a HUGE difference for survivors who are punished by the criminal legal system. Community support is also an act of resistance to the systemic criminalization of survivors of gender violence.
Check out the opportunities below to let survivors know they are not forgotten.
The S&P commissary fund is a project of Survived and Punished NY, a grassroots prison abolitionist organization that exists to end the criminalization of survivors of domestic and sexual violence. This year, we have been raising money to provide commissary support to the survivors in our #FreeThemNY campaign. For the holidays, we would like to extend our commissary support to a broader list of incarcerated survivors. Your contribution to this money pool will help us realize our goal. Please note that donations to the commissary pool are not tax deductible.
If you would like to become a monthly sustainer or hold a fundraiser to cover support for 1 month, please get in touch with Izia Weyman: firstname.lastname@example.org
