Human Rights for Prisoners March, hosted by Mary Neal - Call (347)857-3293 to speak on air. Today's guest is Brenda Anderson, a woman who spent her young years in Texas correctional facilities after protecting herself against three men who tried to rob her after watching her cash a check. Brenda was openly lesbian at the time and feels that her prosecution for self-defense was based on her gay lifestyle rather than on her shooting one of the men. She was also outspoken for human rights of prisoners as an inmate. Brenda's horrific torture as a U.S. inmate was recounted in an article in "Dog Justice for Mentally Ill" blog at

Brenda Anderson is one of the claimants in "AIMI vs. USA", which will present up to 100 cases of discrimination, brutality and wrongful deaths against mentally ill Americans in International Court in 2015.
