As some of you know, someone walked into Red Emma's yesterday and pepper-sprayed two of our worker-owners, as well as the entire front counter, and grabbed a cell phone and ran. This wasn't a random act of violence, this is someone who robbed us last year, and then kicked in our door. We don't know for sure, but it's possible this is the same person who smashed the glass in our front door twice last month.
Thankfully, no one has been seriously injured in these attacks, and the store has been thoroughly decontaminated. But the store can only stand up to so much beating ... and the same is true of the workers. In the past month, we've lost over $1,000 in damages, lost business, stolen property, and pepper-spray-contaminated food.
Please support us in these difficult times. With our move looming on the horizon, we're down to reduced hours, and with that comes reduced income. Please come into the store on the days that we are open (Thursday - Sunday)! The best way to support us is by being in the store, and helping us to generate income, as well as by just providing moral support - there's strength in numbers.
For those of you who feel better off these days, please consider making a donation to help recoup some of our losses: https://www.wepay.com/donations/please-support-red-emma-s

The Friend of a Friend program was founded by a group of concerned men in the prison system, including political prisoner Eddie Conway, to provide mentoring to young prisoners. The program began with an attempt to identify the problems, expectations and daily needs of prisoners - many of whom are of African descent – and excluded from full participation in the social and political process.
The Maryland Department of Public Safety has banned the program started by Conway in the Maryland prison system. Please circulate.

When: Thursday January 17, 2013 at 12pm to 2pm
Where: 300 East Joppa Road in Towson, MD. (The MD. Department of Public Safety and Corrections)
Why: Because a Friend of a Friend has been banned and suffered from frequent discrimination due to our political beliefs. Come support a program that stands by prisoners and formerly incarcerated people.

If you cannot be present please contact the following individuals and demand that the program be reinstated:
