By her next hearing on January 20, Bresha Meadows will have spent 175 days in jail. The empirical evidence shows that pre-trial detention is dangerous and counterproductive. The #FreeBresha Campaign continues to call for Bresha’s immediate release and for the charges against her to be dropped so that she can heal with her family.
In order to continue to raise consciousness about the dynamics of domestic violence, the negative impacts of incarcerating young people, and the criminalization of survivors of violence, please join us for a National Day of Action to #FreeBresha on January 19, 2017.
We encourage Day of Action participants to organize vigils, teach-ins, workshops, and any other actions to bring attention to the need to #FreeBresha immediately.
One of the ways to participate in the Day of Action is to uplift the names of other survivor/victims of domestic violence in solidarity with Bresha. Feel free to post a note that includes a name and a short message (if you’d like) to the wall of resistance and remembrance.
