The Black Womyn's Lives Matter: FREE MARISSA Caravan has returned to the Bay Area after traveling almost 3 weeks across the country from Oakland to Jacksonville Florida for the hearing which was to determine if Marissa spent more time imprisoned in jail, imprisoned in her home, or pardoned for firing a warning shot into the ceiling, injuring no one, to ward off the man who was beating and threatening to kill her.
We'd like to tell you about our travels through-out the country, the womyn we encountered, and the experiences we shared as we worked to make Marissa Alexander a household name across our land, and her fight for freedom our "Stand up, Fight Back" cause.
We will update you on the latest developments against Marissa, the status of her case, as well as what we are going to do in the future to secure a pardon for her - and all survivors of domestic violence.
