FUNDRAISER for Albert Woodfox (Angola 3) / Film / Food / Letter-Writing!
Sunday, March 13, 5-8pm
176 St. Nicholas Ave, Bushwick, Brooklyn
Co-sponsored by Free University-NYC, Campaign to Bring Mumia Home, CUNY Prison Divest, Lynne Stewart Defense Organization, Mayday Space, National Lawyers Guild – NYC Chapter, New Abolitionist Movement, NYC Anarchist Black Cross, NYC Books Through Bars, NYC Free Leonard Peltier, and NYC Jericho Movement (in formation).
This special fundraiser 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 the film The Angola 3: Black Panthers and the Last Slave Plantation, share food, write letters to Albert and incarcerated people, and discuss solidarity inside/outside prisons. All donated funds will be given to Albert Woodfox to help his transition to freedom on the outside.
To make an online donation, click on the “Help Albert!” link on the Angola 3 website, and specify “Albert Woodfox” as the designated recipient.
Please contact us at FreeUniversityNYC@gmail.com if your organization or crew would like to co-sponsor.
