Please join us for a community gathering and rally that will coalesce community organizers and members in solidarity with Marissa Alexander on the “eve” of her retrial. This will be an occasion to gather in poetry, song and more as we share words of struggle, resistance and hope in addition to raising greater awareness about and critical funds for Marissa. This will also be an opportunity for organizers to share with attendees ways in which people can involve themselves in work in the Bay Area around prison abolition, ending mass incarceration, domestic violence awareness and more.
The Chicago Alliance to Free Marissa Alexander will be present and will bring items from the online store to sale where every dollar raised will be donated to the Marissa Alexander Legal Defense Fund.
Please share widely. If you’d like to share a poem, please email us at FreeMarissaChicago at gmail dot com.
