Marissa spends thanksgiving with her three children

For many across the nation, this past holiday weekend was dedicated to spending time with family. 

On Wednesday of last week Marissa Alexander was granted the same wish - she was released on bond and allowed to spend the holiday with her three children. 

The decision was made by Judge James H. Daniel, but with specific restrictions. Marissa will remain on house arrest and under electronic monitoring until her new trial in March. 

We are thrilled for Marissa's release this week, and thank you for your incredible outpouring of support. It's has been your voices and public demonstrations of support that have shaped public opinion and placed pressure on officials to make this first decision for Marissa's freedom. 

We have demonstrated our united power and will continue to mobilize for Marissa until she is permanently released - stay tuned! 

Thank you,
James Williams
