The NAACP, Sisterhood of Survivors, Florida New Majority and other organizations are rallying in support of Marissa Alexander and all victims of domestic violence. Marissa Alexander is a victim of domestic violence who was sentenced to a mandatory 20 years in jail for firing a warning shot into the air because she was afraid of another attack by her abusive husband. Marissa Alexander’s case illuminates the racial disparities and gender biases in our society, especially in the application of Florida's 'Stand Your Ground' Law.
The FREE MARISSA ALEXANDER MARCH & RALLY is scheduled for May 29, 2012, 8AM, Hemming Plaza, Jacksonville, Florida. The guest Speaker is Martin Luther King III. For more information, call Angie Nixon at (904) 610-7103.
