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.
Member’s of ALWH’s Girl/Friend’s group read Nikky Finney’s poem “Flare” dedicated to Marissa.
The “Free Marissa” store was in the house and offered people an opportunity to purchase items and donate to Marissa’s legal defense.
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.
On Sunday, CAFMA co-organizer Mariame used the occasion of her birthday to raise awareness and funds for Marissa. The Free Marissa store was in the house and people were encouraged to purchase items or make a donation to Marissa’s legal defense.
