Send Letters of Support to the Four Young Black Lesbians Imprisoned for the Crime of Defending Themselves

The four young African American lesbians from Newark, New Jersey, who were convicted of gang assault and received long senetences for defending themselves against street harassment have been sent to New York State prisons.  Supporters and those concerned about what has happened to these women and their families are trying to obtain them pro bono counsel to handle their appeals, along with a campaign to support them and win their release.  Any cards or letters of support for them would be greatly appreciated.  Their addresses are:

Terrain Dandridge # 07-G-0637
Venice Brown # 07-G-0640
Patreese Johnson # -7-G-0635
Renata Hill # 07-G-0636

Bedford Hills Correctional Facility
P.O. Box 1000
Bedford Hills, NY 10507
