Proceeds from Certain Days

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

The New York State Task Force on Political Prisoners is dedicated to winning the release of political prisoners in New York prisons. All but one of these seven prisoners are past members of the Black Panther Party and Black Liberation Army and have spent 30+ years years in prison. It includes former political prisoners, lawyers, and representatives of the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement.

Funds donated via the New York State Task Force on Political Prisoners were given to 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.
