Update on Imprisoned J20 comrade Dane Powell

Dane Powell was recently transferred from the DC Jail to a federal facility, which is luckily much closer to his family. His transfer is finally complete. We and his loved-ones have been in regular (but somewhat sporadic contact) throughout the transfer process. Now that his transfer is final, all of us can be back in touch with him!

Dane continues to amaze us all with his capacity to take on this challenge, and to rise to it, at every turn. Please know that Dane is really looking forward to hearing from everyone!

☆☆ Dane’s Birthday is NEXT Thursday (September 7th). It would be so wonderful if everyone who reads this update could send him a birthday card right away (and a gift from his wishlist ONLY if that is financially manageable for you). Amazon Wishlist Link:

Some of the rules and regulations in federal prison are different from DC Jail and others are the same. Please carefully review all of this updated info. Thank you!

Visits are also monitored, and require pre-approved authorization. Additionally, there are limits upon how many folks can be listed (beyond primary family). Luckily, because he is back on his home turf, his friends and loved-ones have his visitation covered. Please reach out to us well in advance of any planned travel to Dane’s neck of the woods, if you wonder if a visit might be possible.

While you’re here, we need your support. To continue running the website, we need support from community members like you. Will you support It’s Going Down, and help build independent media? donate?
