Today on Women's Magazine as  we continue to look at state violence against black bodies we look at how black women's are uniquely  targeted by  state violence, a violence that is too often invisible and behind closed doors.  To look at this issue  Lisa Marie Rollins talks to Alicia Garza one of the co-founders of Black Lives Matter and special project director at the National Domestic Workers Alliance  and to Alisa Bierria associate director of the Center for Race and Gender at UC Berkeley who has been working with the national  campaign to Free Marissa Alexander Now and with INCITE.

The  East Bay Free Marissa  Now Campaign is traveling in a caravan across country to educate people about her case and upcoming hearing so if your interested in being a part of that struggle you can contact them thru their Free Marrisa Now Facebook page.
