From NYC comradesin struggle:
Join F2L and For Keisha as we pack the Kings County Supreme Court in Brooklyn TOMORROW 4/29 to support Keisha Robinson, a Black transwoman facing 10 – 50 years in prison for defending herself and another sex worker from violent attacks. We demand that District Attorney Eric Gonzalez drop all charges against Keisha and work to make Brooklyn a place where Black trans women are not criminalized for self-defense. His office has consistently made statements that it will believe transwomen of color when they are victims of attacks and it is time he make good on his word.
For Keisha is a community led effort of queer and trans New Yorkers concerned with the treatment of Keisha Robinson at the hands of the NYPD and the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office.
We need people to sign up and do court support tomorrow, April 29th, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and make a physical showing of support for Keisha. The hearing is expected to be over in the afternoon but it is possible that it could go until 5:00 pm.
