Web of Link$ Around Ray Sandford: Survivor of Electroconvulsive Therapy

by David W. Oaks last modified 2009-04-10 18:14

Here is a list of more than two dozen agencies and individuals involved in the life of Ray Sandford, the Minnesota citizen receiving ongoing forced outpatient electroshock. All are receiving taxpayer funding directly or indirectly. A few are speaking out for Ray, and should be thanked. But most are not helping Ray say “no” to his forced shock. Some directly profit from it.

updated: 10 April 2009

You are encouraged to add these links to your own blog, FaceBook page, web site, etc. so that more people can search for who is involved in Ray’s life. Help the taxpayers find out who should be thanked, or who should be peacefully asked to support Ray’s right to say “no” to his ongoing forced outpatient electroshock.
