The family of Marissa Alexander, who is facing 20 years under Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law for defending herself against her abusive husband, has asked me to pass along information about a town hall meeting they've organized to discuss this case.
I will be among the speakers at the town hall, and this is a great opportunity for anyone who cares about reforming Florida's sentencing laws to come show their support. I encourage everyone who can make it to come! If you have any questions about the event, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks, and I hope to see everyone in Jacksonville on Saturday!
