On Friday, May 6, 2022, Jessica Williams, a Freedom Inc staff, an advocate for Black women and survivors of domestic and gender-based violence, and a lead organizer in the #ShowKenyairraLove campaign, was arrested upon entering the Dane County courthouse to attend Kenyairra’s sentencing hearing. She was arrested on trumped up charges solely because of her vocal and public defense of Kenyairra Gadson, a queer Black woman who was charged by the state for defending herself against an attacker; this campaign has embarrassed local officials, including the Black District Attorney Ismael Ozanne. This arrest was a premeditated action by DA Ismael Ozanne, Judge Chris Taylor, and their accomplices.

This provocative action sends a clear message that Madison, Dane County, and the state of Wisconsin will arrest those who speak out on behalf of Black women and LGBTQI folks. Jessica’s arrest was a political tactic to intimidate those considering protesting for the lives, dignity, and rights of Black women.
