The ANSWER Coalition actively supports the work of Women Organized to Resist and Defend (WORD)
Now is the time to unite and intensify our efforts in spreading the word about Marissa's case and demanding her complete freedom.
Marissa is a survivor of domestic violence, and is only facing charges because of this racist and unjust legal system. There is no crime in defending yourself from abuse. Marissa acted in self-defense and injured no one. She should not be subjected to a second trial. All charges against her should be dropped immediately.
