Please join us for Letters To CeCe, where you are invited to write a support letter to CeCe MacDonald as she awaits sentencing. We will also be learning from Riley MacLeod how having a pen pal in prison can help make a difference.
Chrishaun “CeCe” McDonald is a young African American transgender woman who is charged with two counts of “second degree murder” after an incident that began when she was violently assaulted because of her gender and race. On May 2nd CeCe accepted a plea agreement to a reduced manslaughter charge.
