We’ve been a little overwhelmed at Free Marissa Now trying to keep up with all of the big news. Here’s an update:
In the last fundraiser that ran from Jan 8-Mar 12, you raised an astounding $41,410, bringing us to a total of $63,439 raised online! You are the movement behind winning her freedom. BIG LOVE AND THANK YOU to everyone who generously donated and shared the fundraiser with others!
On March 14th, we learned that Marissa’s legal team filed a motion for another Stand Your Ground Hearing. Here’s a pdf of the motion. It’s an illuminating and powerful read, and we’ll be posting quotes from it in the coming weeks. We are still planning for the trial scheduled for July 28th just in case she doesn’t get granted a new SYG hearing, or if she does get the hearing but she’s still denied immunity.
The motion and the fundraiser are connected. In the motion, Marissa’s attorney explains that they intend to have a much more expansive hearing with expert witnesses and evidence, all of which costs money to do. Her legal team is able to launch this hearing because of your contributions to the Marissa Alexander Legal Defense Fund. You are the movement behind Marissa’s eventual acquittal!
