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!
this is happening tomorrow, please do this/spread the word if you can.
Hey friends and supporters! Despite the prosecution’s attempt to bump CeCe’s trial up a month in order to limit the time her defense team has to prepare, it was established today that the trial will begin as previously scheduled, on January 9, 2012, at 9:00 a.m. She also has a motions hearing scheduled for December 5th at 9:00 a.m. So plan on helping us pack the courtroom both days, and watch for updates on rallies and other related support actions!
details on what she’s been through/going through are all here (link) [WARNINGS: systemic & personal violence against a black trans woman — assault/cissexism/racism/misogyny/racist slurs/misgendering/victim-blaming/abuse in prison]
Hi everyone, here are a few updates on the progress of CeCe’s case, and how you can support her!
1. Court/legal update
2. Bail money and collateral needed!
3. Upcoming meetings and community events
1. **Court/legal update**
This morning in court, CeCe’s bail was reduced to $75,000 with the following conditions: electronic home monitoring; no contact with witnesses; no drug and alcohol use; and remain law abiding. Her trial date was set for January 9th.
2. **Bail money and collateral needed!**
Now that CeCe’s bail has been reduced, we want to move as quickly as possible to get her out of jail! We need to raise $7,500 immediately to cover the costs of her bond. WE ARE ALSO SEEKING COLLATERAL, which is necessary in order to be able to bond her out. Collateral would be a house or other asset of similar value; if you have something like that and you’d consider putting it up to make it possible for CeCe to be out of jail pending trial, please let us know! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call Katie at 612-363-7574. (Funds are also needed for commissary and other related incarceration costs.) Find info about making donations here: http://supportcece.wordpress.com/donate
