Ona Move. This August 8, 2017, will officially mark 39 years of the unjust imprisonment of our family, collectively known as the MOVE 9. Every year, our Family does a program on August 8 to draw attention to the arrest and unjust imprisonment of the MOVE 9. This year our annual commemoration will not be in Philadelphia as we are calling on all of our friends and supporters in the New York City and tristate area to join us on Saturday, August 5, 2017, at the Historic House of the Lord Church in the People’s Republic of Brooklyn, NY. The Historic Program will be themed “39 Years Too Long—Free the Move 9!” And what a program it will be.
