bathrooms are not wheelchair accessible and do not have grab bars (and 
would not be accessible without assistance).

*Luke O'Donovan *http://letlukego.wordpress.com 
Luke O'Donovan is a survivor of a homophobic attack in Atlanta, GA, was 
sentenced on August 12th, 2014 to 2 years in prison on charges that he 
assaulted those who attacked him. This was the epitome of a hate crime. 
Witnesses report seeing between 5 and 12 men attacking O’Donovan, 
stomping on his head and body, and stabbing him in the back while 
calling him a ‘faggot.’ Now Luke is doing time for defending himself. 
Because he has chosen to remain vegan while in prison, Luke will need as 
much commissary as possible in order to purchase extra food.
*Marius Mason *http://supportmariusmason.org/ 
We would like to let everyone know that Marius Jacob Mason will no 
longer be using the name Marie, and will be using male pronouns. We hope 
that you will all join us in supporting Marius through this transition, 
which will no doubt be extra challenging within the prison system.
Marius Mason is a long-time activist in the environmental and labor 
movements. In March 2008, he was arrested by federal authorities for 
charges related to two acts of property destruction that occurred in 
1999 and 2000; no one was injured in either of them. He accepted a plea 
bargain and was sentenced on February 5, 2009 to just under 22 years. He 
is now serving the longest sentence of any "Green Scare" prisoner.
