[URGENT: this is happening TODAY]
On December 16, call, email, and fax Hennepin County Attorney Michael Freeman and tell him to drop the charges against CeCe! Flood the lines and let Freeman know we won’t rest till CeCe is free from this racist, transphobic prosecution.
Chrishaun “CeCe” McDonald is a 23-year-old African American transgender woman who, after being violently attacked for her race and gender, is being unjustly charged with two counts of second-degree murder. Hennepin County Attorney Michael Freeman has the power to drop the charges against CeCe. So far, though, he has implicitly sided with CeCe’s white supremacist attackers by failing to acknowledge the racist, transphobic assault that she survived.
When: Friday, Dec 16, ALL DAY
Where: From home, work, wherever you find yourself!
What: Call Michael Freeman at 612-348-5540, fax at 612-348-2042, and email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Call Marlene Senechal at 612-348-5561, fax at 612-348-3061, and email at email@example.com
Remember to remain polite but assertive. Some key points to mention in your calls, emails, and faxes are:
* Identify yourself as a supporter, friend, family member, or community member calling about Ms. Chrishaun McDonald’s case.
* Tell the County Attorney’s Office why you’re concerned: Ms. McDonald was the target of a hate crime, but she was singled out for aggressive prosecution after the attack.
* County Attorney Freeman has declined to press charges in cases like this at least three times already this year, and he has the power to drop the charges against Ms. McDonald.
* Tell Freeman not to side with Ms. McDonald’s white supremacist attackers: drop the charges against Ms. McDonald.
Support CeCe McDonald! Call/email/fax the Hennepin County Attorney (link) [WARNINGS: talk of cissexist/racist violence (by the attackers & the “justice” system), cissexist/racist/gay-bashing slurs, & racist media representation]
some online free faxing places:
also, a notice at the end of the post:
Future call-in days will be called for December 27th, and January 6th. Check back for details!
