Brandy Scott is a Black trans woman and survivor of domestic violence. Please join Survived & Punished (S&P) and Trans, Gender-Variant, and Intersex Justice Project (TGIJP) as we organize urgent support for Brandy's release.

Brandy was criminalized for defending herself against an abusive partner. She is serving a 22 year sentence and although Brandy has already served her base term, she is still incarcerated due to a gun enhancement. In 2018, Brandy petitioned for commutation of her sentence. She then updated her petition under Governor Newsom. If Gov. Newsom approves her commutation, Brandy could be released and home with her community.

In addition to this, Brandy transferred from Central California Women's Facility to California Institution for Women due to consistent and targeted transphobic violence by prison guards. We are concerned for her ongoing safety for the duration of her sentence.

* With your community support, we are hopeful that Brandy will be released sooner rather than later. All funds will go to Brandy: donations will contribute to the reentry support she will need when she returns to her community of loved ones. Until then, funds will also help make sure that Brandy can access items she needs to purchase through commissary especially during the Coronavirus pandemic. Brandy also hopes to hire an attorney with the funds collected in order to access pathways to release. *

Please join our community effort to support Brandy’s safety and freedom! Thank you for your support.

Latest Update

Dear supporters, On the first #TransLiberationTuesday of #WomensHistoryMonth, we have a message from Brandy Scott: “I will like to reach out to everyone who has supported me through these difficult times. This last year has been a challenge for us all but everyone still made an effort to reach out and support me in my situation and that means so much to me I can't say how much I thank you all. However, I thank everyone for their generosity of kindness, every one's that signed my petition, and also your tribute for my cause of legal support. I thank you all." With deep gratitude for your support, Brandy is half-way to meeting her target goal! Please continue showing up for Black trans women & criminalized survivors of domestic violence by sharing the link: bit.ly/BrandySurvivalFund Much peace, Fatima (she/her)
