The struggle to free CeCe McDonald, who ‘stood her ground’ after she and her group of Black gay and trans friends were subjected to racist, transphobic and homophobic slurs and then attacked by white supremacists while walking past a bar in Minneapolis will play out in a court pretrial hearing tomorrow at 9 AM CDT.
The pressure is mounting on Hennepin County attorneys to drop the charges as this case gets additional international scrutiny and attention. There is also a Support CeCe McDonald online group that has sprung up with the goal of getting CeCe released as well..
If that doesn’t happen during the pre-trial hearing tomorrow, the trial will start on April 30 and will probably last for up to two weeks. If you live in the Twin Cities area and can come to the Hennepin County Government Center to support CeCe, please wear purple to demonstrate to the judges and supporters that the community has Cece’s back.
