Free Battered Women

On Oscar night, I was lucky enough go to a fundraising event for Free Battered Women organization. While watching John Stewart on a projection screen, I learned about the unfortunate plight of domestic abuse survivors. They are a San Francisco based group that work to get freedom for women who are in jail for defending themselves and their children against domestic violence. This group works to get parole for victims of abuse who are serving life sentences for actions against their abusers.

I think it's a great organization, as I don't like to see people locked up for actions of self defense. Check it out here:
