Working To Free Marissa on the the Weekend…

CAFMA members were around town over the weekend raising awareness and money for Marissa. Some members attended A Long Walk Home’s 2nd Annual Domestic Violence March dedicated to Marissa Alexander on Saturday.

CAFMA co-organizer Ayanna read a poem by Pat Parker and said a few words before the march.

It was rainy and cold but this could not dampen the spirit of the marchers who showed their support for Marissa.

There were many expressions of solidarity for Marissa throughout the event. We are grateful for A Long Walk Home and the Lawndale community’s support.
