From Love & Protect:
Tewkunzi Green is a Black mother from Peoria, Illinois. In 2007, she killed her abusive boyfriend while defending herself and protecting her infant child. At trial, she argued that she acted in self-defense but was found guilty and sentenced to 34 years.
Efforts are now underway to file a clemency petition on behalf of Tewkunzi in January 2017. At that time, she will have been in prison for 10 years.
If you're interested in helping to support Tewkunzi's clemency petition, come to this Chicago informational session on the evening of February 25, 7:30 PM - 9 PM in CST, location TBA. Facebook event page.
