News from a friend who asked that we pass it along:

Dear Friends and Supporters of Sadie and Exile,

I recently visited with Sadie at Dublin and wanted to share
that experience with everyone. She is doing well, keeping busy, and
finds her new life much improved from the confines of
Lane County. While there are some perks to prison
life; better food, access to arts and crafts, more
freedom of movement, a wardrobe (well, sort of), cats,
coffee, real shoes, and opportunity for fresh air and
exercises...there are also new challenges she is having to face.

Within the prison system, racial and class tensions are high,
and the guards can be unnecessarily tough. As Sadie
put it, "there is always the jingling of keys coming
up behind you", making it hard to ever really relax.
However, she is doing her best to adjust and trying to
make the most of her time. She was recently assigned a job as a
plumber, and although she makes something like 8 cents
an hour, she is glad to be learning a useful skill.

She also said she's grateful to recently have been receiving more mail,
but is still hoping to hear from others, especially those
in Olympia!

One of her biggest concerns right now is maintaining funds for
commissary. Unlike jail, in prison she has to buy
EVERYTHING from clothes, to basic toiletries, shoes,
pens, paper, radio, etc... And soon she will start having
money deducted from her wages for restitution so she is trying
to acquire all of the supplies she needs before that happens.

If you can send any financial support her way (via the support address
and NOT directly to the prison), I know it would be greatly appreciated.
She's there for a long, long time, and having the money
for basic necessities and the occasional art supply will certainly
make her time pass more interestingly.

Although she is finally settled, she still has a long
and lonely road ahead. While it is easy for us to get
caught up in our lives, and take our freedom for
granted, she is stuck- trying her best to find balance and
normalcy amongst the razor wire and concrete that
threatens to define her existence.

Lets do our best to remind her that she is loved,
supported, and most importantly, has not been
