{ Anyone know anything about live kidney donations? }

cydne-should-be-sleeping:

I have a friend who is on dialysis and I’ve always thought about altruistic donations or whatever. So I’m thinking about seeing if we match.

I added a paypal donate button to my page.

I really hate to ask anything of anyone on here and I really hate sharing certain super personal stuff, so this is really awkward for me. Basically, my family is having a shitty time. We’re all broke, that’s normal for us. But about a month ago my younger sister got arrested. I don’t feel like really going through why on here right now. Her bail is way too high for any of us to pay, and even if we could, no one owns anything to put up as collateral. What we’re trying to do is pay for a lawyer and put some money in her account for cantine (I think that’s how you spell it), maybe buy her a book or two. Her court date is in November, so she’s got a while to be in there (as if stuff is going to work out even then). We got an estimate for a lawyer last week and were told $7,500. Even with everyone chipping in, that’s out of our budget. I’m not asking for $7,500, just whatever anyone who wants to donate feels like giving so that I can chip in more than I am now (a big fat nothing).

Thank you in advance to anyone who does this.

{ LINK: CeCe McDonald is out of solitary; her hearing is 9:00 MN. TIME }

this was posted yesterday.  it’s probably too late but posting this now anyway [sorry].  and AFAIK you could still donate if possible.

Good news: CeCe is OUT of solitary!! Thanks to everyone who called the jail!

You can stop the calls now, but her hearing is still happening tomorrow, so please come and help us PACK THE COURTROOM. We want her to see how much love and support she has, when she makes her appearance.

*When: September 22nd, gather at 8:30am (hearing at 9:00)
*Where: Hennepin County Government Center – 300 6th Street South, Mpls

info on what happened to her is here (link) [WARNINGS: systemic & personal violence against a black trans woman — assault/cissexism/racism/misogyny/racist slurs/misgendering/victim-blaming/abuse in prison]

{ LINK: Updates on CeCe’s case (we need help making bail!) }

Hi everyone, here are a few updates on the progress of CeCe’s case, and how you can support her!

1. Court/legal update
2. Bail money and collateral needed!
3. Upcoming meetings and community events
————————————

1. **Court/legal update**
This morning in court, CeCe’s bail was reduced to $75,000 with the following conditions: electronic home monitoring; no contact with witnesses; no drug and alcohol use; and remain law abiding. Her trial date was set for January 9th.

2. **Bail money and collateral needed!**
Now that CeCe’s bail has been reduced, we want to move as quickly as possible to get her out of jail! We need to raise $7,500 immediately to cover the costs of her bond. WE ARE ALSO SEEKING COLLATERAL, which is necessary in order to be able to bond her out. Collateral would be a house or other asset of similar value; if you have something like that and you’d consider putting it up to make it possible for CeCe to be out of jail pending trial, please let us know! Contact mpls4cece@gmail.com or call Katie at 612-363-7574. (Funds are also needed for commissary and other related incarceration costs.) Find info about making donations here: http://supportcece.wordpress.com/donate

3. **Upcoming meetings and community events**

*September 30: Purple House Open House Fundraiser for CeCe and Movie Showing. The Purple House will be screening Meu Brazil (My Brazil), a documentary film by Daniela Broitman about community leaders from the slums of Rio De Janeiro who travel to the Fifth World Social Forum.
8 pm at 3155 14th Ave S., Mpls.

*October 15: Fundraising dinner for CeCe and Carlos Montes. Details TBA.

*October 16: Black, Brown, and Queer All Over, at The Exchange (3405 Chicago Ave S, Mpls)! This event is a queer and trans hip hop concert for The Exchange and CeCe. Featuring Kevin “Kaoz” Moore, Heidi Barton Stink, ZaVawn Carre, Chey Bryant, House of Bordeaux, and more!

*There are media/outreach meetings at 6 pm at the Exchange (3405 Chicago Ave S, Mpls) every other Thursday at 6 pm. The next one is October 6th.

*and…the next general CeCe Support Committee Meeting is Wednesday, October 5th at 6 pm, and the first Wednesday of every month thereafter. Also at the Exchange (3405 Chicago Ave S, Mpls)
