Three ways to show solidarity with Gina:

  1. Email Minister Ralph Goodale (and others) calling him to stop Gina’s deportation. Template letter here.
  2. Donate to help cover the cost of her legal fees (please share this request letter for donations). Donate here via secure PayPal and let us know your donation is for Gina’s legal defence.
  3. Write a letter to the editor of the Star expressing your support for Gina, why you care about this issue, and why she shouldn’t be deported. Very short letters are fine!
