Spoon Jackson Project

The friends of “Spoon” Jackson have asked SJRA to assist them in obtaining funds for his Legal Defense.  Spoon is being represented by an attorney and all funds received under this project will be used to help mitigate these costs.

Donations to Spoon Jackson Project

are NOT Tax Deductible.

Spoon is also a contributor to the “SJRA Advocate” and his BIO can

be found by going to our “Writers List” on the Menu Bar.
