BRICK BY BRICK FREEDOM FUND FOR POLITICAL PRISONERS
The Brick by Brick Freedom Fund is a campaign, which focuses on securing freedom and life-sustaining support for current and former political prisoners in PA and those who are currently being targeted by the state for political resistance.
The Brick by Brick Freedom Fund was established by BLM Philly in partnership with Abolitionist Law Center and the Philadelphia chapter of the Jericho Movement to provide life-sustaining financial support to current and former political prisoners and legal defense for those who are currently being targeted by the state for political resistance. Your donation to this fund will directly benefit elders who have struggled for liberation for decades as they rebuild their lives after and during incarceration and people currently fighting cases related to the 2020 uprisings for racial justice.
This fund was established in honor of members of the MOVE Organization and beloved political prisoners such as Mumia Abu Jamal and Russell Maroon Shoatz, whose struggles and immense sacrifices have directly impacted our local communities. Our current fundraising goal of $520,000 will provide direct support for housing, medical care, and daily needs to former political prisoners, including surviving members of the MOVE 9, commissary deposits for the daily needs of current political prisoners, and legal support for current political prisoners and those being targeted by the state.
At BLM Philly, we believe “It is our duty to fight for our freedom.” This means supporting the efforts of our freedom fighters who’ve been unjustly persecuted by the state. Through this fund, we give flowers to our movement elders and political prisoners who have paved the way for the work of Black Lives Matter and our collective fight for freedom, and are still living, teaching, leading, and fighting for us.
Join us in our effort to support political prisoners in the state of Pennsylvania, who have sacrificed their freedom for the cause of justice. They have committed their lives to the struggle, and it is now our turn to support them in securing and sustaining their freedom.
