Certain Days is a fundraiser. The proceeds from Certain Days 2016 will be divided among these groups:

RAPP (Release Aging People in Prison)

The RAPP Campaign mobilizes currently and formerly incarcerated people, their families, and other concerned community members. From this united base and through the RAPP Coalition, we work alongside other prison justice advocates to (1) raise public awareness about the destructiveness of mass incarceration and the benefits to society in releasing aging people, including those convicted of violent crimes who do not threaten public safety; and (2) promote the use of key mechanisms for releasing elderly people, such as parole, compassionate release, and policy changes.

Addameer Prisoners Support and Human Rights Association is a Palestinian non-governmental, civil institution which focuses on human rights issues (Addameer is Arabic for conscience). Established in 1992 by a group of activists interested in human rights, the center’s activities focus on offering support for Palestinian prisoners, advocating the rights of political prisoners, and working to end torture through monitoring, legal procedures and solidarity campaigns.

Unist'ot'en Camp is a non-violent homestead created with authority of the traditional Hereditary Chiefs of the Unist'ot'en people. Freda Huson, who is Unist'ot'en along with her partner Toghestiy have been occupying Unist'ot'en traditional lands for the past six years to protect it from industrial destruction. We have many visitors that have come in to assist in protecting our homelands through preparing meals for occupants, and building various projects. Most recent project we are raising funds for is a healing centre which is being done in three phases. The healing centre will be used to bring healing to our people from many traumas, from residential schools and child apprehensions. These entities were set up to take the Indian out of the child. Our holistic healing of restoring culture, spiritual, mental and physical healing to our people and many others. Heal the people and we will heal the land.
