NCTE in Solidarity With Cece McDonald

Last week, the National Center for Transgender Equality joined the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs (NCAVP) and fourteen other LGBT advocacy groups in urging County Attorney Michael Freeman to drop the second-degree murder charges against Cece:

Hennepin County Attorney Michael Freeman has charged McDonald with two counts of second-degree murder for acting in self-defense and allegedly fatally stabbing one of her attackers. Hennepin County has dropped murder charges in three similar cases where people have acted in self-defense. NCAVP and our allies add our support to the public outcry to drop the charges against CeCe McDonald.

The pre-trial hearings end today and the trial begins on Monday, April 30th. To help Cece,  we encourage you to join nearly 15,000 other people in the Change.org petition calling on Michael Freeman to drop the charges. NCTE will continue to monitor the legal proceedings and update our blog about new developments.

  2. a really info plus. The newest product, the v2 electronic cigarette,
    has gotten rave critiques from a number of shoppers.
    Adults typically smoke for other factors. In contrast to classic cigarettes,
    E cigarette kit doesn’t make any stains in the finger and teeth neither the breathing smell because it is not generating nicotine. You can also look up other brands that are just as tempting as the next when it comes to going the green way.
