This is Lynne's first trip to the Bay Area since her release from Federal prison. She will be with her husband Ralph Poynter, Pam Africa (Founder of Free Mumia), and Ramona Africa (Co-ordinator of The Move Organization). We will celebrate her life and struggle, and focus on the work ahead to free all political prisoners and fight racist mass incarceration.

Because of a determined people's movement Lynne is finally home with her family. But she has urgent medical needs and costs to fight her metastatic breast cancer, and this event is to help raise the needed money. Lynne gave a lifetime of courageous legal help to those of us who needed it the most. Now it's our turn to help her. Please come.

This San Francisco event is part of a series of meetings Lynne Stewart will have in the Bay Area. For more information, contact Jeff Mackler at jmackler [at] imi.net or call 510-268-9429.
