Lynne Stewart’s burthday is October 8th and rallies, vigils and speak outs will be held throughout the country. In the Bay Area, we will gather at 5 p.m. and speak out from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. outside the offices of Senator Dianne Feinstein, Market and Montgomery in San Francisco. Our goal continues to be to win compassionate release for our fellow Guild member, who is suffering from cancer and turning 74 years old. Senator Feinstein has a unique role to play as a member of the Judiciary Committee.
There are two things you can do. (1) Join us on October 8th to call on Feinstein to exert pressure over the Department of Justice and Bureau of Prisons to release Lynne Stewart and accelerate compassionate release for all people in federal prisons. And (2) click here to add your name to the new petition to free Lynne Stewart.
