Over 40 national and state organizations send letter to Dane Co. D.A. regarding Cierra Finkely Case!!

In this powerful show of solidarity over 40 anti domestic violence groups from across the country have written a letter to DA Ozanne for #JusticeForCierra. The use of force by vulnerable populations needs to be a right and the groups recognize the failure of law enforcement to help survivors of domestic abuse in any meaningful way.
