Things are already bad–and they’re about to get worse if we the people do not come together to fight back!

In the spirit of Dr. King, the People’s Power Summit is a coming together of diverse people’s organizations to celebrate our shared history and future.

Our intention is to continue building a mutually empowering network of progressive organizations and community members.

This is an independent initiative to fight for the rights of poor and working people, including jobs, education, housing, food security and healthcare.

We struggle against racism, sexism, low wages, prisons and war. We support the LGBTQ community, Black Lives Matter, the Indigenous, Immigrant Rights, Family Farmers and unions.We fight for the environment and believe Water IS Life!

Plight of the Imprisoned Worsens in the United States

…. Prisons Are Integral to the Capitalist System of Exploitation and National Oppression

In the U.S. there are more than 2.3 million people incarcerated. The number of those within the criminal justice system has grown by 500% since the early 1970s at the time of the Attica Rebellion and other forms of prison resistance.

African Americans, people of Latin American descent and proletarian people in general make up the overwhelming majority of those held behind bars. These inmates are forced to work for slave wages producing goods and services for the capitalist and imperialist system. The exploitation of labor within the criminal justice structures represent another form of modern-day enslavement.

Moreover, the almost nonexistent state of healthcare within the prisons is endangering inmates, those working in the facilities along with their families and friends that visit the institutions. Although there has been the release of some inmates based upon compassion related to health concerns, far too many remain behind bars for nonviolent crimes which pose no threat to society.

The police and prisons grew out of the sordid history of the ruling class within the U.S. The continued existence of both institutions remains a threat to the struggle for total liberation and social emancipation.
