Unexpected news from Florida
Here's what's happening:
1) Marissa Alexander's bond hearing has been postponed.
While it was originally scheduled for today, the State Attorney's office announced that Marissa's bond hearing will be held next Wednesday, November 13th.  The reason for this change is unknown, but now we will have more time to show our support for Marissa before her new hearing! You can still write a letter to Marissa here.
2) Florida House votes not to repeal the Stand your Ground Law.
Yesterday, the Florida House was open to public comment about the Stand Your Ground Law. After five hours of testimonies, the House voted 11-2 to keep the law in place. While the battle to repeal Stand your Ground will continue, Florida's Senate has a bill that could alter the current law. 
Your outpouring of support for Marissa Alexander and for the repeal of Stand your Ground has been extraordinary.
