**THE POSTER PROJECT**
The “I Stand with Cece” poster project is an effort to capture the breadth of Cece’s support. We believe that racism and transphobia permeate all layers of government, and that there is no justice for Cece in the Hennepin County legal system. We believe that a court system that defends white supremacists forfeits legitimacy. We call upon the Hennepin County Attorney Michael Freeman to drop all charges against Cece, and we call upon all people of conscious to connect with her case and engage in efforts to defend her.
Our goal is to create a visual display that will illustrate the diversity of reasons to stand with Cece. We ask you to participate by going to,
or by dropping in at the Exchange, at 3405 Chicago Ave S, in Minneapolis, or coming to tonight’s event, to get an ‘I stand with CeCe” poster to complete. Take a moment to reflect on why you are drawn to Cece’s cause, and then complete the sentence on the poster:
“Because _________________, I stand with Cece.”
Drop your poster off at the Exchange or bring it to the December 15th event, “Battling White Supremacy,” where we will add it to the display.
Thank you for adding your voice to the mix.
