What is the Campaign to Bring Mumia Home?
The Campaign to Bring Mumia Home is a united front effort bringing together a new generation of young activists alongside of Pam Africa of the International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal (ICFFMAJ) and the various currents within the movement to Free Mumia. Its member organizations include ICFFMAJ, Educators for Mumia Abu-Jamal (EMAJ), Free Mumia Abu-Jamal Coalition (NYC), the National Lawyer Guild, the Committee to Save Mumia Abu-Jamal, Sankofa Community Empowerment, the Committee to Save Mumia Abu-Jamal, Mobilization to Free Abu-Jamal/Northern California, Le Collectif Français "Libérons Mumia,” German Network Against the Derath Penalty and to Free Mumia Abu-Jamal, Amig@s de Mumia de México, Millions for Mumia/IAC.
Our goal is to bring Mumia home as we work to end mass and political imprisonment in the United States. Because Mumia is known the world-over for his radical commentaries and writings on inequality and because he has spent so much of his time in prison offering a radical critique and analysis of the crisis of mass incarceration, a victory in Mumia’s case would open up a much larger conversation in the mainstream about the crisis of mass incarceration and political imprisonment in the U.S.
Our strategic plan is focused on changing the perception of Mumia in Philadelphia, establishing the facts of Mumia’s innocence, and raising his profile in key cities like New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago and especially Washington DC. We are also committed to raising Mumia's profile among a new generation of young people as an important prerequisite to the civil disobedience actions that will be necessary to bring Mumia home.
