A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle
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
