Have you heard about Bresha Meadows and the Bresha Meadows Freedom campaign?
Fifteen-year-old Bresha Meadows of Ohio is incarcerated and facing a charge of aggravated murder for defending herself and family against the unrelenting terror and abuse of her father. (from Love & Protect’s solidarity statement)
Our systems fail victims and survivors, especially girls and women of color, then do nothing until they have defended themselves. And what they do is criminalize and put them through further violence and trauma. (I suggest checking out No Selves To Defend for more about the criminalization of women who have defended themselves against violence.)
Join me and 400+ others in signing this campaign in support of dropping the charges against Bresha Meadows.
