Organizer/AuthorT.K.
Marissa Alexander, mother of 3, was charged and convicted of firing a single warning shot into a wall to protect herself from her abusive husband. She was sentenced to 20 years in prison, but after nearly 3 years in custody, won a re-trial. Now the prosecutor, Angela Corey, is pushing for consecutive sentencing in her new trial. Marissa faces 60 years in prison for defending herself.

This Saturday, International Women’s Day, we will gather in Oscar Grant Plaza for a march into West Oakland to talk to our neighbors and bring awareness to Marissa’s case. We cannot allow the racist and sexist persecution of Marissa Alexander to continue.
