Dear Mumia Supporters,
You have gotten many emails from us over the years, inviting you to
countless events, which have educated, entertained and mobilized around the
case of Mumia Abu Jamal, his innocence, his health, and the stories of
other brave, brilliant, revolutionary political prisoners.
What makes April 24th so different?
The forces of injustice in this case have been successful in preventing
Mumia's innocence from seeing the light of day in court for the entire
duration of his incarceration.
But on April 24th, the day of Mumia's birthday, the courts are going to
hear an important issue on his conviction--the closest we've come to
achieving freedom for Mumia and bringing him home.
Ronald Castille was one of the Philadelphia prosecutors who helped put
Mumia behind bars. Recall that, the jury that convicted and sentenced

Supreme Court ruled unconstitutional in summer 2016 in a case involving the
This is what is at issue on April 24th.
Do not miss this hugely significant chance to support our dearly beloved
teacher, Mumia Abu Jamal. We need to show up in force and pack the court
on April 24th!
