"Help A Sister Out" Benefit for Lesbian Hate Rape Victim

On December 13th, a twenty-eight-year-old California woman was brutally raped by four men because she is a lesbian and had a rainbow sticker on her car. See the story at SFGate.

If I could help financially I would, but being one of the people that isn't working I may be the one with my hand out soon. You know how I feel about this subject since it to had happen to me and never wish this even on my worst enemy. I am sorry, I wish I could be there to console her.

I don't have much cash, but will put together something. I hope she has a partner or loving family to help see her through this!
I can post something on my blogs and try to raise some $$$ at work...

Where is the public outrage? I haven't seen this story much in the TV News nationally... except online. What a disgrace this hate crime is -- California is sinking to new lows lately. My heart goes out to this woman. Thank God she's alive.
