Please come out to support Sherrie, a co-founder of FANG who is being prosecuted for taking action to resist ICE in Bristol County, Massachusetts.

Sherrie was one of four people arrested last year at the Bristol County House Corrections after peacefully blocking the entrances to the prison. The action was carried out in solidarity with people detained by ICE who were on hunger strike to protest the dire conditions at the facility. Bristol County Sheriffs reacted to the action with violence, resulting in Sherrie receiving a concussion and other injuries.

The three other people arrested with Sherrie at the action have all been sentenced to ten days in jail. Sherrie is taking the case to trial. They are making a motion to move the location on Wednesday, July 17th. This could be their final court appearance before the trial begins. Please join us as we pack the New Bedford District Court to show our support for Sherrie!
