Dear Friend,

This unparalleled year has taken so much out of us. Combatting this mass scale pandemic while in the thick of a global racial uprising has been no easy feat. It is crucial, now more than ever, to continue unapologetically protecting our incarcerated family. 

Because of our unflinchingly abolitionist stance and our refusal to censor our correspondents’ journalism, we almost never get grants from foundations. We rely entirely on your donations. We have a goal of $75,000 for our winter campaign and we are currently at twenty percent of that goal at $16,732 from 188 of you. 

We want to acknowledge your generosity in such a challenging year. You keep our organization alive, and our correspondents on the air. So thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

But the fight is far from over. As long as prisons still stand between us and our people, we need to make sure we have first hand accounts of whats happening behind their walls. And we need your help to do that. Please help us raise another $60,000 to support the publishing of Mumia’s latest 400 page book, to keep the phone lines full for 47 consistent correspondents, the publishing of over 200 commentaries this year, to completely overhaul our website in 2021, and of course compensating our staff. Share our campaign, the words of our correspondents, and our mission.

We are in a time of unprecedented leverage. People are opening themselves to imagine a world without policing, prisons, and state-sanctioned harm. The shapers of this new world are our incarcerated friends. We must continue fighting to push them to the forefront of this revolutionary movement. 

When we fight, we win!
