Resources

The campaign to #FreeGiGi has been organized by a DC-based defense committee with the support of organizers who have worked to collect and share resources on the criminalization of survivors and forming defense campaigns to free them. We are grateful for the work of Project NIA, Love and Protect, Survived and Punished, and many more who have worked to bring attention and safety to those who live at the intersections of gender violence and state violence.
