Thank you all for signing my petition asking for the charges against my sister, Jewlyes Gutierrez to be dropped. More than 200,000 of you took action and the outpouring of support means so much to us! 

The Judge recently placed Jewlyes in a restorative justice process – this allows her and the other girls involved in the fight to work toward a resolution that doesn’t involve the courts. Once she completes that program her charge will be dropped! 

Jewlyes was also nominated to be San Francisco Pride’s Grand Marshal! The SF Pride Celebration and Parade is the largest LGBT gathering in the nation. She is nominated alongside some amazing LGBT activists and would really appreciate your vote! 

If you’d like to vote for her, please click this link: http://sfpride.org/vote/ 

Thank you so much for your support!
