Solidarity with Bresha Meadows: A Statement from Love & Protect
Fourteen-year-old Bresha Meadows of Ohio is incarcerated and facing a charge of aggravated murder for defending herself and family against the unrelenting terror and abuse of her father. We stand in solidarity with Bresha and demand that she is returned home to her family and that all charges against her are dropped. As an organization that supports trans and cis women and gender non-conforming people who defend themselves from interpersonal violence only to face sanctions from the state, we stand with young Bresha, who confronted her father in an effort to stop the frequent and brutal abuse endured by her mother, her sisters, and herself.
"Bresha, her mother, and her sisters endured years of abuse and threats by Bresha’s father. After continuing to witness this abuse, Bresha sought help from family members and police, but the violence continued. As a young girl with few options, she was rightly scared for her family members’ lives as well as her own. What Bresha faced was not new: countless Black women, girls and gender-nonconforming people face similar matrices of interpersonal violence and state violence. Many, like Bresha, are criminalized for choosing survival" (excerpt taken from site listed above).
