WHAT: Political Prisoner Letter-Writing
WHEN: 7pm, Tuesday, December 29th, 2020
WHERE: YOUR HOME
It’s our final every-other-week political prisoner letter-writing event of 2020 and we can’t believe it. Our last public event was on March 10th and when we decided to temporarily suspend in-person events we couldn’t envision it lasting the entire calendar year let alone the foreseeable future. Yet, here we are continuing to raise awareness and asking folks to write letters in the comfort and safety of their own homes so that we can keep the tradition alive as we collectively move through this dystopian reality. For this final event of the year, NYC ABC and Page One Collective are asking folks to write to one of the most well-known u.s.-held political prisoners–Mumia Abu-Jamal.
Mumia Abu-Jamal is an African-American writer and journalist, author of six books and hundreds of columns and articles, who has spent the last 30 years on Pennsylvania’s death row and now general population. Mumia was wrongfully convicted and sentenced for the murder of a Philadelphia cop. The demand for a new trial and freedom is supported by heads of state, Nobel laureates, distinguished human rights organizations, scholars, religious leaders, artists, scientists and, as important, millions of folks like you and us. For more information, be sure to visit bringmumiahome.com.
Please take the time to write a letter to Mumia Abu-Jamal (and share a photo of your completed envelopes with us online):
