A special benefit event: Free 'Em All for MUMIA ABU-JAMAL

A special benefit event: Free 'Em All!


Mumia Abu-Jamal is an innocent political prisoner, framed for a crime he didn't commit, and now in his 28th year of incarceration on death row. Recent Supreme Court rulings have upheld his fraudulent conviction in a grotesquely unfair trial, and sent him closer to execution.
