Two huge decisions are about to be made in Florida
This week two related events will make history in Florida. Here's what you should know:
1) Florida's House will hold a hearing on the Stand your Ground law on Thursday, November 7th.
Last July, the Dream Defenders occupied Florida's Capitol Building to protest the biased Stand your Ground law and demand the passing of Trayvon's Law. This week they will return to offer their testimony against the Stand your Ground Law in a hearing before the House.
They need our voices to help #packthehouse.
On Thursday morning we'll email you with instructions on how to #packthehouse by calling Florida's Chair and Vice Chair of the House Criminal Justice Subcommittee to give your own testimony on why the Stand your Ground Law should be repealed.
2) On Friday, November 8th, Marissa Alexander's bond hearing will determine if she will be released from prison until her new trial in March.
For this pivotal event we must get loud for Marissa and support her release! The courts decision on Friday could free her for the next five months.
Leading into Friday's event we will use this campaign page to show our support and dedication to this courageous mother fighting for her rights in a corrupt system.
As a community of over 40,000, we can make an incredible difference this week by standing together and making our voices heard.
Thank you for your support,
We can demand freedom for this mom. Learn more about Marissa's hearing here.
