Posted on August 15, 2017Once again we want to thank those who are supporting Rah throughout her court dates. After her attack, trust doesn't come easy to her, so our sustained support is important. Rah decided that taking a plea was the best chance at living. Trial had a death sentence of 25yrs in prison if she lost and unfortunately many folks in Charlotte reinforced HB2 rhetoric to villanize Rah. Understanding that any jury would be transphobic/anti black and fucked up she chose a plea deal that includes: supervised probation for 3yrs, no registration, and one felony charge of crimes against nature. THIS ISN'T JUSTICE. THIS ISN'T OVER. While she doesn't have to go to court any more, she still must intimately interact with police for the next 3yrs. She is required to check in with her Parole Officer Once a month, She must pay 70$ a month to perform community service, and She has to pay court cost of 792$. Then she also must sustain herself as well. We ask for the continued support and donations.

Posted on April 28, 2017Thanks to months of organizing, Ralayzia was able to retain suitable legal representation. We are still raising money with a priority on housing and also living expenses/ medical needs/ additional legal expenses not covered by the legal team.
Currently Ralayzia is facing either 25 yrs of prison or a plea deal that will make Ralayzia's access to housing/employment/education go from scarce to impossible. Ralalyzia next court date will be her arraignment date where the judge will ask her to plea guilty or not guilty. Due to strategies employed by the DA and the defense, we know that the date could change. We will update everyone on any changes.
Regardless on the any changes, Plz Donate and Share
