I am the granddaughter of a political prisoner

There is a small but distinct set of people in the U.S., whose stories are not widely known: the family members of our country's longest held political prisoners.

One of them (who's received RFC grants for many years) has written a guest blog for us. She's a remarkable teenager whose grandfather's decades-long incarceration has spanned her whole life (and beyond). We think you'll be moved by her powerful story here.
