On March 27, Kevin turns 28 years old. Sadly, he’ll be spending it in prison. This case has always had a pathetic irony to it—that people accused of freeing innocent lives could wind up spending a significant amount of their own years behind bars. But the backwardness and injustice becomes especially apparent when our friend spends another holiday or birthday locked up.
Please help raise Kevin’s spirits by sending him books from his wish list, donations to the commissary fund, or just a simple letter of support. (Birthday cards are also allowed and encouraged!) Letter-writing events, benefit concerts or dinners, and solidarity demos are also great ways to show Kevin, Tyler, and the rest of the activist community that you stand with them and the animals. (If you do an event or demo, please send Kevin a photo. He loves them, and his fellow inmates are always impressed with how “famous” he must be on the outside.)
Thanks for doing everything you’ve done already. Please keep up your support and activism—it does have a huge impact.***
Please send Kevin a letter of support:
(Note: Kevin Johnson is his legal name.)
