Leslie Feinberg dedicated the 20th anniversary Author’s Edition of Stone Butch Blues to CeCe McDonald.
CeCe is a trans woman activist of color in Minneapolis, MN, who was punished with a heavy prison sentence for defending herself from a white racist neo-fascist attacker.
In “This Is What Solidarity Looks Like” Feinberg gathered together a visual “how-to-organize manual” of this movement. The slideshow starts with the first local gatherings in Minneapolis and shows how the collective organizing of Free CeCe! spanned the globe.
A movement grew from local to international to free CeCe and to support trans* people’s right to self-defense. Feinberg fought for CeCe’s freedom, and was arrested for writing the words: Free CeCe! on the courthouse walls where CeCe was sentenced.
Here are some of Leslie Feinberg’s articles about the struggle to Free CeCe!
