Letters and Art for CeCe Mcdonald

Last Thursday night a group of FMLAers got together and shared homemade guacamole, baked chips and drinks while we got our creative juices goin’ to write letters and create artwork and fun collages for CeCe Mcdonald. 

On Monday, June 4th, CeCe McDonald, a trans woman of color, was sentenced to a 41-month prison term by Judge Daniel Moreno. CeCe and her friends were verbally harassed with racial and transphobic slurs, and physically attacked, and in the process of defending herself one of the attackers was killed. Although she initially faced two charges of second degree murder, on May 4th she accepted a plea agreement to a reduced charge of second degree manslaughter due to negligence.

You can read more about CeCe’s case here: http://supportcece.wordpress.com/

We encourage you to write your own letters and send them to CeCe to show her that she is loved and supported all over the world, and especially to continue to keep her in your thoughts even after the media stops paying attention to her case. You can learn more about writing CeCe at the Support CeCe letter writing campaign page: http://supportcece.wordpress.com/get-involved/write-cece/

We love you CeCe - stay strong!
