Last year I worked hard on social media for Free Marissa Alexander East Bay caravan in early 2015. There were many amazing, mostly womyn of color, working on this. One of these amazing womyn was LaJuana Decatur. Listen to my video below to find our more about LaJuana.

In the second video, in December of 2014, LaJuana speaks about why she chooses to travel across the USA to do anti-racism, domestic violence awareness, and Black Womyn’s Lives Matter teach-ins throughout the USA. It was recorded a year ago, and since then, LaJuana successfully completed the caravan travel.

And lastly, here is a trailer to the documentary about the Free Marissa Caravan that LaJuana participated in.
