U.N.I.O.N. Awards - 2004

B. Cayenne Bird, U.N.I.O.N. Director

I compiled approximately 500 newsletters for you this year so that you could spend ten minutes
a week writing a simple ten sentence letter to the editor. 

Why would I donate at least 2000 hours of my time in order to get you to donate 520 minutes a year writing to the media?

Because they are banned from prisons and what goes on in the darkness is deadly. We have 52 of California's best journalist who read the UNION Daily Newsletter almost each day
monitoring what you report into me from the prisons. We are the watch dogs, the guardian angels of all inmates.  We certainly do not catch everything as our network needs to be much larger and much more active.

Each time than an inmate dies or there is a riot and it gets past the media, CDC is empowered to commit even more murders and abuses.

Another reason I send you the issues is so that you an speak and write on all the prison topics when you are out at the prisons recruiting new UNION workers.  It is so your writing will have depth and you will be able to fight back for yourself and others.

Public information is key to prison reform and it's everyone's job to report the inhumanity to the other voters who are paying for this mess.

We did one campaign after another this year, five events, inspired four lawsuits for medical neglect and murder by pepper spray, one big rally and hundreds of letters to editors were published.

We applied pressure on wardens at prisons statewide including Norco for H-Pylori outbreak, Lancaster for multiple deaths and abuses, Salinas Valley for poison water, High Desert for a cruel lockdown, and many others where members were willing to work on campaigns.

We supported and opposed bills through our rally and letters to the editors - it was a really busy year.

We had very little money to work with but by the grace of God and few good volunteers bled to death we were able to make it all happen.

I prayed for my individual strength on Jan 1, 2004 and our collective strength and we were blessed.

Nearly 500 times I gave you a number of opportunities to use your pen, the mightiest of all weapons to stand up for yourself and others. 

The people who were most responsive to these appeals were: Beverly Bittner, mother of Donald Swisher, who died needlessly of Medical Neglect in April 2004 at CMF Vacaville.  She writes five or six letters to editors each day.

Her mother worked for the Antioch News and was a journalist who passed away years ago.  But Beverly learned from her that public education is the ONLY way to reform.  It is noble to fight for others when your own son is dead. 

Very noble indeed and she has opened up her life and contacted at least 100 journalists in California and across America to alert them to the many deaths we have had of young inmates in these bloodhouses.

Beverly has flown out twice for our press conferences from Indiana and always sends someone if she can't make it herself.  This is dedication people and a key part of our being able to properly organize  is showing crowds and support.  Beverly delivers even though she often approaches strangers to be there for her.

She has battled guards and idiots in PTO bringing the UNION message, mailed in newsletters to inmates, recruited a number of new workers and all of this AFTER her own son died this year.

It is for these reasons and more that we have reviewed the track records of those whose subscriptions are paid (non subscribers are ineligible for this competition) who did this work:

1.  Wrote the most letters to editors

2.  Showed up to all or most of the five events we held this year.

3.  Recruited the most new workers

4.  Got out the vote during election time.

Now here is an interesting twist to this  year's recognition.

Beverly made a new friend in California this year who is a long time UNION worker whom we have all grown to love.

That would be Lettie Bakington who is a cornerstone of all our work.

She sends in  newsletters to inmates statewide, gives lodging to UNION people sometimes even when they haven't been that helpful with the work, attends everything and spent hundreds of hours on our television show.

So there is only one fair decision to make and that is that we name TWO outstanding UNION members for 2004.

Beverly Bittner and Lettie Bakington

We should not forget the other outstanding UNION subscribers who should also be recognized!

The Law Firm of Ravis and Martin and Attorney Mark Ravis who filed four wrongful death lawsuits and spoke out to the media on  our behalf.  Lawsuits and Initiative Campaigns are the ONLY language besides adverse publicity that CDC and the clueless legislators will ever recognize. 

These lawsuits give us real teeth, no longer just words but  actions that could possibly result in reform.  Medical Neglect and Abuse by Pepper Spray are serious problems that threaten the lives of every California inmate. 

And a challenge to the unlawful changes in the packages rules is in progress right now. 
How can we ever recognize and thank attorneys Mark Ravis, David Martin and Jorge Reyes enough?  By showing up to these hearings and writing letters to the editors at each leg of the fight, that's how.

Janice Crumley, devoted Web Mistress spends hundreds of hours maintaining our UNION website and has since 1999.  A former legal secretary and journalist, she donates all this time and has no one in prison.  She also maintains Eric's website which details the abuses he has received simply because we are organizing a voice for prisoners and he is my son, and because he files complaints.

Susan Randall, Database Coordinator, Record Keeper and Sgt. of Arms keeps everyone honest.  If not for Susan, we'd never be able to get people to focus on two or three campaigns at a time so that things can get done right.  Organizing families of prisoners is akin to herding cats and it is almost impossible to get anything done when people want to go off on this tangent and that...Susan keeps us all honest and writing letters to editors, building our war chest (which is empty after all the campaigns we've done this year)

Susan has a tough job and no one sees the hundreds of hours she spends backing me up, answering inmate mail, responding to journalists who want this documentation and that...tons of work is done by Susan for no pay.

Self responsibility would be the best route for everyone to honor the UNION commitment letter and I hope we achieve that in 2005.  We are only as strong as the NUMBER of people who write to editors, show up when called, recruit new workers and get out the vote.  Susan keeps everyone active with us or she kicks them out. This is sometimes necessary.  I hate asking people to help 500 times and have them just sitting back waiting for these backbreaking projects to get done without their help.

Attorney Robert Bastian courageously wrote to judges and other lawyers on a number of topics in 2004 and was published many times in the Los Angeles Daily Journal.  He tells every one of the UNION and is a great supporter and has been for many years.  Thank you Rob!

Judy Anders is our star recruiter for 2004, bringing in at least ten new members (maybe more) one of them a member of the clergy for the Seventh Day Adventist Church who attended the Anthony Brown press conference and has vowed to help bring people to all our events.  Judy brought in teachers, nurses, others with a loved one in prison and they are learning how to write, recruit, show up and get out the vote. 

 She is married to a very famous journalist who will hopefully be doing more writing this year.  We need this level of talent in Sacramento as conditions get worse and worse and not everyone knows how to write and speak.  Judy works a full time job and visits her son every week end, she always has UNION flyers and attended almost all events and rallies this year.  An inspiration to us all, let us recognize Judy as one of the outstanding UNION people of the year.

Beverly Bloomington is the daughter of a former Teamster President and has made a tremendous impact this year.  She has stood in the dark, in the cold recruiting families to help with our campaigns almost every week-end for months.  She has donated money for flyers, stamps, equipment rental at our rally, she brought two carloads to events, and has a wonderful attitude.

She and Sarah organized a rebellion at one of the prisons when  the warden was going to eliminate visits and collected 250 signatures and put a stop to it.  This empowers the others to see what doing things in mass can  produce. 

She lives in Orange County and has suffered a great deal with her own loved one being in ad seg this  year for no reason, getting transferred, and the ignorance and apathy she encounters week after week to build our UNION corps of workers.

But she knows that organizing is necessary and that none of us will see justice in our cases, nor will conditions improve until we achieve our 6500 workers so she is relentless.
She never rests.  Her attitude is wonderful and Beverly Bloomington is one of the best volunteers we have, she has stood up to the bullies and idiots in PTO and is a fine example of goodness and grace.

Infectious is the word!

She never comes alone to events but always promotes and reaches out, which is vital!
Beverly Bloomington, put it together for her work on the behalf of everyone because she has definitely made a difference for you!  Her kind of fortitude and endurance embodies the fighting spirit and inspires us all....including me!

I have had some very rough moments this year and Beverly Bloomington has been a force that keeps me motivated. 

Susan Luteski is in the background and another prolific UNION subscribers.  She writes several letters to editors per day usually and fights in PTO against the ignorance and apathy, stands up against the guards and CDC agents who try and stop our UNION organizing.
She attended all the rallies and press conferences except one and sent a stranger there to represent her.  She lives up near the Oregon border so this is a real sacrifice of time, gas  and yet she still delivers.

Susan is very talented although she never wrote letters to editors before, she really has a knack for it and has been published now. She mails in the newsletters to inmates and distributed flyers for the press conference coming this Friday at prisons statewide. 

Susan is is a new UNION member this year but she has done a better job than many of our old timers and deserves a huge round of applause and recognition.

My daughter Malyssa and daughter in law Natalie, without whom I would be unable to be the UNION director at all.  My family has paid dearly for our work to organize and while they wish you would all hurry the hell up and achieve our goal of 6500 workers, they are important back up in every way.

Thank you girls for living without a mother and grandmother so that I can work on this mission.

Hopefully we'll make it in 2005.  I have committed to October as the deadline which means that a lot of people had better get recruiting!

A few have sacrificed in many ways to make the UNION voice possible which isn't fair.  And it isn't smart to break the backs of a few while others just go on about their lives and wait for it to get done.

My girls have sacrificed a great deal, as well as  my son Eric and I would like to take this opportunity to recognize and thank them for their strength, forbearance and ability to earn a living with no help from their mom.

Special mention for many Letters to Editors written & Published
Shirley Weatherwax

Rosemary Carigol

Bob Driscoll

Cheryl Knutson - relative new member but really turning out letters to editors. I anticipate she is going to be one of our outstanding UNION people in 2005.

Special Mention for Extra Projects

The family of Anthony Shumake attended several press conferences to back up our UNION organizing even though in grief for his needless death by medical neglect.

The family of Ersel Ware attended several press conferences as well, even during a
period of grief after his death.

Dr. Sarah Chappell, Prepared an extensive legal packages challenge
and was published several times

Sandy Forbes, mails into inmates and backs me up - we could never have found Anthony Brown without her paying for the background report.

Nielly Manci has been a fierce PTO warrior, being kicked out several times, brought people
to our press conference and is getting warmed up for more action this coming year.

All those who spoke at our rallies and press conferences, we thank you!

The UNION commitment letter upon which our awards are based is located here.  You must be a paid, active subscriber to be considered. It is an annual tradition. 


Separate from our annual members of the year recognition, We would like to recognize the outstanding journalists of 2004. 

As with our member of the year, we could not settle on just one, so we are naming TWO for the top recognition.

Don Thompson of Associated Press


Kimberly Fu of the Vacaville Reporter

Their press coverage was important and they did an incredible job, keeping many facts straight.
for outstanding coverage of our work and prison issues all year long.

We would also like to recognize and thank for outstanding news work of issues important to prisoners and their families, as well as the taxpayers

Mark Gladstone of the San Jose Mercury News

Andrew LaMar of the San Jose Mercury News

Steve Smith of the Stockton Record

Pablo  Lopez of the Fresno Bee

We cannot recognize everyone but these are the people who are at the top  of the list.

Our television editor Ron Petersen deserves a huge round of applause for all the work he has done this year and will do next year. Producing that television show is a lot of work and very expensive and we can't do more shows until we raise some money.  None of it would have been possible without Ron who has no one in prison. 

My prayer this year is for VICTORY - in all of our lawsuits and raising money to do more campaigns and more television shows. 

I am also praying that we reach our goal of 6500 workers so that the UNION will go on past October, which is the deadline I am giving everyone to get the recruiting done.

I will need to see a broader base of active writing, picketing members before I initiative a visiting
lawsuit but I'd love to be able to do that.  It's up to you, each of you, what will be possible in 2005.

We need 100 people to go to the legislature this year to stand up for inmates and their families as I am expecting hell to rain down on us from the Republican politicians who are high on themselves after the election of Bush and the lies Schwarzenegger told about three strikes.

One of our goals must be to organize to keep him from getting elected in 2006 because we aren't going to see serious reform with him as governor except by lawsuits and initiative campaigns which requires NUMBERS  of organized workers to FORCE.

All best,

B. Cayenne Bird
