Last week, I blogged about a lesbian woman who was gang-raped in a hate crime due to her having a rainbow sticker on the back of her car. Thanks to Pizza Diavola in the comments, I now have information on a way that you can help the woman who was the victim of this horrific crime.

On December 13th, a twenty-eight-year-old California woman was brutally raped by four men because she is a lesbian and had a RAINBOW STICKER on her car.
The woman will need months to recover physically and years and years to recover psychologically. She needs our emotional and financial support.

Not all of us are able to send a donation, but I hope that those of us who can will. All of us can at least send a card or quick note of well-wishes. At a time like this, community and solidarity are extremely important. Let’s show Jane that we are behind her in any way we can.
