    My friend’s daughter was born with lissencephaly, which means that her brain is smooth instead of bumpy. She’s almost 4 and is getting too big for them to carry around, so she now has a wheelchair. Her parents are trying to raise money to buy a wheelchair van and they could use some help.

    Help Lunden get a ride!

    Here’s an urgent fundraiser for Jill Brenneman. Jill is a trafficking survivor and sex workers’ rights activist who has recently been on the receiving end of medical maltreatment and has a terminal condition as a result. She will hopefully have heart surgery within the next month, and needs financial support as her health insurance has been obstructive.

    To learn more about Jill, here’s the first installment of a multi-post interview. Trigger warning: she was subjected to horrific violence over a period of years, and it makes for hard reading. However, Jill’s insight and compassion really stand out.
