Marissa Alexander Moved

Shortly after we protested in front of the jail Marissa Alexander is being held at, she was moved to a jail in Ocala. I can't help but wonder if this has something to do with the fact that her case was getting so much media attention, and people were actually paying attention.

From the Free Marissa Now Tumblr:

The world is demanding Marissa Alexander’s immediate release for her self-defense action of firing a warning shot to stop an attack by her abusive husband. How can she be kept in prison for 20 years when the killer of Trayvon Martin is walking free?

Let Marissa and the prison authorities know how much public support she has! Your message will keep Marissa’s spirits high. And the word will trickle up the chain from the censors to the prison authorities to Florida officials that we will not rest until she is free!

Here’s what to do:

1. Write your own letter, or download a pre-made notecard here:

2. Print the notecard in color or black-and-white. Fold in quarters and write your message on the blank panel. Mail to the address on the back panel (this is a new address as of July 22). Include a postage stamp and self-addressed envelope if you’d like to get a response.
If you’re writing your own letter, here’s Marissa Alexander’s most updated address:
Marissa Alexander
Lowell Annex
11120 NW Gainesville Rd
Ocala, FL34482

The Tumblr is a great resource if you want to read more about Marissa and how you can help. You can find it here.
