Marissa Alexander is a 34-year-old Black mother of three who fired a warning shot in self-defense after being assaulted, strangled, intimidated and threatened by her abusive husband. Although Marissa’s abusive husband fully admitted his assault, Angela Corey, the same prosecutor who failed to convict George Zimmerman in the murder of Trayvon Martin, is mercilessly prosecuting Marissa for a 60-year sentence.

CONNECT and NY Radical Women have joined forces to raise awareness, raise funds, and organize New Yorkers locally in support of Marissa’s freedom and right to self -defense, and would like to join up with other organizations and individuals in this struggle.
