There’s a ton of news to share this week.
First, read the update on the plea deal that Marissa accepted on 11/24/14. Second, make sure that you write Marissa at the Duval County jail where she will be until January 27, 2015. Third, please keep donating to Marissa’s legal defense fund as she will still need resources for the next couple of years beyond her release while she is on house arrest. Fourth, please show your solidarity with Marissa by changing your social media AVIs until her release from jail.
Finally, CAFMA organized a couple of solidarity actions for Marissa this past week. We kicked off with a combined solidarity effort for Marissa and Mike Brown. CAFMA member, Mariame Kaba, wrote about the event here.
The next day on the West Coast in Oakland, CAFMA member Ayanna Banks-Harris co-hosted (with Incite!) a discussion about Marissa’s case.
Finally, Chicago’s youth remind us that our struggles are interconnected… “We do this til they free us”
