CNOW Action Team Event: Letter Writing for Bresha Meadows

June 7th, 2017 · No Comments · Action Items, Events, Homepage

Come join Chicago NOW in supporting Bresha Meadows at our letter writing event on June 28th! Bresha Meadows was just 14 years old when she was incarcerated for defending herself and her family against the violence of her abusive father. During her time in an Ohio juvenile detention center, Bresha has been separated from her family, put on suicide watch, and left without proper access to emotional and psychological support. According to a plea deal submitted this past May, Bresha (now 15 years old) will be moved to a treatment facility at the end of July at her family’s cost. Her case has garnered support from thousands of people from around the world and yet the fight for her freedom persists. Join Chicago NOW in writing letters of support and love to Bresha as well as bring awareness to state criminalization of domestic violence victims and their families.

When: Wednesday, June 28th from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
Where: Argo Tea at 16 W Randolph St, Chicago, IL 60601
