PAMAFRICAspeakingforMUMIAABU-JAMAL MumiaAbu-Jamalistheworld’smostfamous political prisoner. He was tried and unjustly convicted of the murder of police officer Daniel Faulkner and sentenced to death in 1982. Until a recent victory that allowed him to return to the general prison population, Mumia was on death row with most of the time spent in solitary confinement. Despite ballistics evidence, which proved otherwise, the recanting of key witness statements and a confession by someone else, Mumia remains in prison. Known as the Voice of the Voiceless even from prison he is a commentator on worldwide events, an organizer, and a much-heralded author. Now 39 years later Mumia needs our urgent help as he is facing life threatening COVID 19 and congestive heart failure and infected sores on his ankles and wrists from being shackled to his bed. He has systematically been denied the medical attention that any sick person in prison deserves. It seems like they are trying to kill him. Pam Africa has worked tirelessly for Mumia getting European parliaments to support him, city governments here such as San Francisco and Nobel Laureates Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu and Toni Morrison.

 JOIN US FOR RALLIES, ADVOCACY DAYS & ACTIONS



We have much to celebrate. 
Two Justice Roadmap bills - the HALT Solitary Confinement Act & the Marijuana Regulation and Taxation Act - are now law. 

But we are far from done. Each day in New York State, thousands of elders languish behind bars, families are weighted down by predatory court debt, and millions of New Yorkers are denied jobs or housing because of old conviction records.

Join us throughout April for rallies, advocacy days and actions as we fight to end perpetual punishment:
