Hello. I writing to ask for your help.
My friend Alina, who is a transgender woman, was arrested in October 2016 on false charges of drug possession. Currently she is on a male jail awaiting for her trial. Our request that she is held in a male prison until the trial was denied because her legal documents says that she is legally male. Thus we are afraid that something very bad may happen to her.
We are asking for help to collect the fee of the attorney for her legal defense because we do not have enough money. We have until (and including) 28 February to collect the fee of the attorney in law. We friends and family have contributed all we could but it was not enough. A friend of Alina made a web page with details of how you can help: http://save-alina.dmtr.ru/how_to_help. There is also more information about Alina and some photos of her, so that you may get to know she better.
Could you please help us? We request donations and we ask you to share our fundraiser page in social media. Thanks you very much!
