Earlier this year, we wrote to all of you asking to help Tona Brown, a transgender violinist and mezzo-soprano, fund her performance at Carnegie Hall. We are proud to say that Brown has reached her goal, and she will officially be making history as the first openly transgender woman of color to perform at the iconic venue on Wednesday, June 25, 2014, at 7:30PM.

Jane Doe has been imprisoned without charges at York Correctional Facility for more than 50 days. This is far too long for this young trans woman who has been a victim of horrific abuses at the hands of the Connecticut Department of Children and Families. We demand #JusticeForJane.
