Where Do We Go From Here?: A Discussion about Marissa Alexander’s Case, Plea Deal and Future

The Chicago Alliance to Free Marissa Alexander (Love & Protect) and UIC’s Institute For Research on Race & Public Policy hosted a discussion on Marissa Alexander’s case, recent plea deal, and where do we go from here. Panelists discussed the historical criminalization of black women who try to defend themselves and the erasure of their stories as well as ways to support women and other prisoners who have been disappeared by the system and how we can take care of our communities without having to turn to the police or the state.
