Urgent Call To Action to Demand the Freedom of Dr. Mutulu Shakur! – D.C. Press Conference October 7, 2022

Thank you for your continued support to free Dr. Mutulu Shakur, father, grandfather, healer, human rights organizer, and revolutionary political prisoner, who has been incarcerated for 36 years. We come to you again with an urgent call to action:   

On Friday, October 7th, at 12PM EST the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, the #FreeMutuluNOW campaign, and supporters of Dr. Shakur will deliver over 60,000 petition signatures to the U.S. Parole Commission and the U.S. Department of Justice calling for the immediate compassionate release of elder Dr. Mutulu Shakur. The petition delivery will take place a week ahead of the upcoming parole hearing for the dying 72-year-old acupuncturist activist, who has stage three bone marrow cancer and been given less than 3 months to live.  Read latest Health and Legal Update

Dr. Shakur has been in custody for over 36 years and fits every possible criteria for release. Under the law he should be granted mandatory parole, which would allow him to spend the remainder of his life fighting his cancer and being with his family and community, people who love him and need him. The various agencies within the DOJ – the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the U.S. Attorney, and the U.S. Parole Commission – are each abdicating their responsibility to do justice. The result is death by bureaucracy for Dr. Shakur and others like him. Join us to demand the immediate compassionate release of Dr. Mutulu Shakur!

WHAT: #FreeMutuluNOW Press Conference & Petition Drop

WHEN: Friday, October 7th, 2022 at 12PM EST

WHERE: U.S. Department of Justice, 950 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, D.C. 20530

After delivering the petition signatures, supporters will march from the U.S. Department of Justice to Black Lives Matter Plaza where we will hold a prayer vigil honoring Dr. Mutulu Shakur.
