10 Days to Black Freedom: A Fundraiser for Marissa Alexander

We continue to keenly focus our attention on Tuesday, January 27th, the day Marissa is scheduled to be released from a Jacksonville jail.  Upon her release, Marissa will begin a 2-year house arrest requiring she be once again shackled with an ankle monitoring device.  This device physically and financially shackles Marissa to the State of Florida as it requires her to pay $105 weekly to maintain the monitoring device.

Our hope is to ease Marissa’s transition by raising the entirety of the 2-year monitoring fees – $10,920 – in the 10 days prior to her scheduled release.  To that end, Free Marissa Now and CAFMA are launching “10 Days to Black Freedom: A Fundraiser for Marissa Alexander” this Saturday, January 17th. Donations can be made HERE. We need to reach $56,870 by January 27th to meet the goal.
