Co-sponsored by Free University-NYC, Campaign to Bring Mumia Home, NYC Free Leonard Peltier, and Mayday Space (in formation).
This special event will honor the February 19 release of Albert Woodfox (the Angola 3’s last remaining member who had been imprisoned in solitary confinement for over 41 years). We will screen a film about the Angola 3, share food, write letters to incarcerated people, and discuss solidarity inside/outside prisons. Funds will be donated to Albert Woodfox to help his transition to freedom on the outside.
Please contact us at FreeUniversityNYC@gmail.com if your organization or crew would like to co-sponsor.
This event builds upon our December 13 event “Care Down the Walls: Education, Health, and Housing beyond Prisons” (http://freeuniversitynyc.org/2015/11/24/dec-13-care-down-the-walls-education-health-housing-beyond-prisons-free-university/)
