Bo Brown, former political prisoner, forever activist, and dear friend 
has been diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia, a debilitating and brutal 
terminal neurodegenerative disease with daily deterioration of the mind 
and body. This is a benefit to support her care.

Bo was a member of the George Jackson Brigade and served eight years in 
prison as a political prisoner. She has worked with lesbian groups, 
butch groups and prisoner groups for more than 30 years.
A year after she was released from prison, in 1988, she helped to found 
Out of Control: Lesbian Committee to Support Women Political Prisoners. 
She helped to create and organize Sparks Fly: an annual benefit that 
commemorated International Women Political Prisoners Day. She worked on 
the Dyke March and was active with Critical Resistance. Bo is currently 
a Prison Activist Resource Center board member.
