HOST A CELEBRATION IN YOUR CITY IN HONOR OF DR. MUTULU SHAKUR
Critical to the #MutuluIsWelcomeHere Campaign are events that highlight the work and impact of Dr. Mutulu Shakur. We are asking all those in support of Dr. Mutulu Shakur and all political prisoners to host a #MutuluIsWelcomeHere Celebration in your city before the April 4, 2016 hearing.
#MutuluIsWelcomeHere celebrations will be shaped by organizational and individual capacity and needs in this critical moment. No celebration is too small or insignificant.
As you plan your event, we ask you to keep the following in mind:
- We need testimonies of Dr. Mutulu Shakur’s impact. Invite people from your community who know or are inspired by Mutulu. Have a video camera and/or a computer to record testimonies.
- We need more people to know about Mutulu. Consider having some political education on Mutulu and political prisoners at your celebration. Feel free to tie in Mutulu’s work and struggle to local work.
- Consider raising funds for Mutulu. Once released, Dr. Mutulu will need financial support.
- Have fun. Invite local singers, drummers, dancers, poets, etc. to use their skills to celebrate Mutulu. Fun events draw more people which means more support for Mutulu and local organizing efforts in your community.
