#FreeSharisa Joy Kochmeister
Since Tumblr likes Short Posts I made it short.
Sharisa Kochmeister is in an undisclosed “host home,” separated from her family and communication supports. Jefferson County, CO took an autistic advocate who types to communicate, based on shaky allegations, and refuses to let anyone she knows near her.
They did not just take her and put her somewhere else. They took her keyboards and what she uses to communicate. The hospital decided she had nothing to say, without trying to understand. They have violated her right to free speech by taking her communication devices; they institutionalized her involuntarily.
