URGENT & IMMEDIATE ATTENTION! OPEN THIS EMAIL, NOW!!!!!!!!
- Attention everyone!
I know a lot of you have not heard from me in a very long time - I've been very busy fighting the system and winning my cases.
But at this time, the focus isn't on me! At this time, the focus is on my dear friend Promethea!
Please find it in your heart to help a friend with traveling costs from MA to Phoenix, AZ!
Her life has been endangered last night and we can't wait any further for her immediate safety!
If we have the beautiful heart and understanding to help someone in another country in need, then we must also help someone in our own country - in our own backyard!
Please contact Leonna immediately @ nvopres@... or Tel/Fax (508) 941-5367 to help make financial traveling arrangements - to keep a very strong advocate, Promethea, safe!
The time is always right to do what is right.

The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was: "If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?" But... the good Samaritan reversed the question: "If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?"

She is alright, although very sore and with a having trouble eating anything solid.The advocate, Sara Jones, from Arizona, wants us to send Promethea by bus, to her home where she is going to have her stay permanently. I would appreciate any assistance possible, with getting her bus fare together, as I had my car towed away in Boston, last week, when I took Promethea for her Thursday night meeting and it costs me $140.00 dollars to get it back from "Tow Happy", in Hyde Park. Please help me to get her out of Brockton and to Arizona before anything more serious happens. Her life is now in danger and I cannot move her fast enough to something more safe.Thank youLeonna

I have been trying to keep her in a stable situation due to the fact, there is no other available placement for her. As a result, I received the attached letter from the site manager at my residence. I spoke with him, prior to writing the attached response to him and let him know Promethea has not stayed with me all the time, but only when beds were not available or placement in safe houses, expired. Although he told me not to worry about it, I find it necessary to prepare for future problems, due to one resident who is adament about getting Promethea out of the High Rise, a resident whom Promethea, befriended and trusted to disclose her gender identity and background. From the day this resident learned of Promethea's gender and background, she has gone out of her way to cause problems. This has placed Promethea under a great deal of stress and has hindered my work.I am asking everyone, as well, to assist in working with me, even if only to provide temporary two week placement/s periodically, in order to substantiate the fact, that she is not living on a full-time basis, at my residence. I am allowed to have guest for two-weeks at a time. Promethea has been staying in the streets all night, as a result. This is not good. Nor, is it going to help in the treatment she is receiving from everyone. I am aware, her case is unique and will take a lot of advocacy on our part. I hope we can all work in unity to fulfill our mission to help this young woman.
