J Ferguson Legal Defense Fund

Hi, my name is Jonita Ferguson. I am a senior citizen who has lived in the same Philadelphia neighborhood for more than 30 years. A lot has changed over the years in my neighborhood. It used to be a place where people looked out for one another but not anymore. Children played outside after school. You could go to sleep in your own bed and not have to worry that someone would try to harm you while you slept.

Well, All that has all changed now. Seniors and especially senior women are not safe here in their own homes with the increase in criminal activity new residents who do not respect the community. I recently had a traumatic encounter at my own home with people who had no respect for me nor the idea of community.

I need your help to raise money for legal expenses as I am financially unable to pay for a lawyer. The funds raised will go towards attorney fees. Please help by giving whatever amount that you can and by sharing this fundraiser page. Use the link at the top or share my fundraiser post on Facebook.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
