Vanessa moved back to Hughes Unit

As of early November, Vanessa has been moved to the Hughes unit in Gatesville. This is great news, to she can be closer to her support network. Here’s a photo from a recent visitation! She decided to cut her hair short at the Clements Unit due to staff harassment. We’re hoping that she’ll adjust quickly back to Hughes and experience less targeted abuse.


With the holidays fast approaching, please consider writing her a card! She’d appreciate hearing from more outside support, and continues to encourage media to reach out regarding her various lawsuits and experiences as a trans woman in the Texas prison system.

Address the card to “Vanessa” and include her TDCJ # – 699888

Address the envelope as:
Scott Gibson #699888
A. Hughes Unit
3201 FM929
Gatesville, TX 76528
