speaker bios?

Laura Whitehorn? After a relatively middle class beginning in New Rochelle, NY, Laura joined the Weather Underground Organization and later spent over 14 years in prison for a series of property bombings that protested racism and the imperial policies of the U.S. government. She’s been an out lesbian most of her life and, for almost 10 years, she’s been out of prison. Laura is now a senior editor at POZ, a magazine for HIV-positive people.

Susie Day? Suzie clawed her way up from the lower middle class of Kansas City to work as a hip New York City paralegal and occasional activist. She’s written for various queer and leftist publications about political prisoners and labor issues. She also writes a monthly political satire column that nets her sometimes as much as 50 dollars.

Presented by members of? Certain Days Freedom for Political Prisoners Calendar, Open Door Books, Prisoner Correspondence Project, Project 10, Q-Team, and Tadamon!
