She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Free Marissa Alexander organizing meeting

In 2010, when 31-year-old Florida mother Marissa Alexander fired one warning shot through a wall at her abusive husband, she thought she would be protected by Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law. Alexander was wrong and was instead sentenced to 20 years in prison on three aggravated assault charges. Alexander’s husband and his two young children were at home at the time of the shooting but all three were uninjured. There has been a large outpouring of support for Alexander since the sentencing, including by folks here in Seattle. Join the Pacific Northwest Alliance to Free Marissa Alexander tonight (Wednesday) for an organizational meeting.  Help plan future efforts locally to help Alexander’s case get the attention it deserves.

When: Wednesday, November 28th 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Where: LEMS Bookstore at 5023 Rainier Avenue South, Seattle

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
