On Friday, May 7th at 7:00 PM there will be a virtual town-hall to address the urgent need to free aging Black political prisoners (like 84-year-old Sundiata Acoli above) who are languishing in prisons even as the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened the health status of many.

Register here for this important town-hall.

So far 2021 year has turned out to be a more urgent year for our political prisoners than prior recent years.

For political prisoners, the law is always ignored or applied more harshly; and their political views or actions are used as an excuse to justify their harsh sentences, exceptional treatment and denial of parole. As a result, our elders, our freedom fighters who have languished behind bars for decades, are faced with a health crisis of unprecedented magnitude.

Denied release on parole or deemed legally ineligible for release, their health is rapidly failing. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, several of them have tested positive and or required hospitalization.

Sadly, over the decades, several of them have passed away behind bars.

The situation is dire and urgent for Sundiata Acoli, Mumia Abu Jamal, Dr. Mutulu Shakur, Russell Maroon Shoatz, Jamil Al Amin, Kamau Sadiki and others - all elder freedom fighters targeted by COINTELPRO and currently facing life threatening health conditions while in prison. Their lives are in jeopardy and they NEED us! We OWE THEM!.

Join us in conversation to hear the latest on their individual cases, how you can support and what MUST be done to save their lives and bring them home.
