Presumably you’ve been able to sidestep the hoverboards and consumer-ready drones that are meant to keep you distracted while racist goons in blue uniforms murder every person of color they can. Whatever the fad, disguised as this year’s must-have shiny object, NYC ABC stays focused on what we know– supporting U.S. held political prisoners and prisoners of war. To that end, we are hosting our every-other-week political prisoner letter-writing dinner. And how better to end the year than by focusing on 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.

We expect to see you on Tuesday. If you can’t make it, please take the time to write a letter to Mumia:
