It’s that time again! Join us on September 12th for another #runningdownthewalls 5K to raise funds for #politicalprisoners! Proceeds will be split between Mumia Abu-Jamal and the Warchest fund that sends monthly stipends to 17 other political prisoners.
#RDTW is more than a 5K, it’s a day to amplify voices of comrades behind bars and lift them up in their struggles, and maintain material support. Over last 3 years we’ve raised $17,952 for current and former political prisoners. Let’s do it again this year!
Mumia is a former Black Panther, MOVE supporter, organizer and inspiration for the prison lawyers movement, award-winning journalist and author of several books and hundreds of columns and articles. Known as “the voice of the voiceless” for many years of speaking out about issues relating to working class people of color, prisoners, and more, he was targeted and framed for the murder of a cop in 1981. He was convicted on perjured testimony and manufactured evidence. It’s urgent that we come together for the freedom of Mumia, especially as he faces medical neglect on serious health complications, including congestive heart disease, liver damage, a severe chronic skin condition, and recent recovery from COVID-19. All hands on deck to #freemumia
The ABCF Warchest sends monthly stipends to PPs and POWs with insufficient, little, or no financial support. Since November 1994, the program has dispersed more than $150,000.
Running is not required! You can also walk, bike, skate, roll, etc. If you can’t make it or would like to make additional contributions, please sponsor a participant either outside or inside prison, or one of each. Contact us for more info on sponsoring!
Mumia has been in prison for nearly 40 years. Together we are stronger than prison walls, and together we can bring Mumia home. Register now for this meaningful 5K run/walk/roll on September 12th and #runformumia!
