Now in its 23rd year of publication, the Certain Days: Freedom for Political Prisoners Calendar is required reading for radicals, leftists, and all who support political prisoners and advocate the end of mass incarceration.
All proceeds support prisoners and grassroots organizations like Release Aging People in Prison (RAPP), Mutulu Shakur legal support, Sundiata Acoli release fund, Palestinian Youth Movement, Burning Books expansion, Puget Sound Prisoner Support, Coalition to Decarcerate Illinois, Appalachians Against Pipelines, Community Resource Initiative- CA, P4W Memorial Collective Prisoners’ Justice Day healing circle, Wet’suwet’en Solidarity Fund, Cascadia Forest Defenders and NorCal Resist.
Each calendar has 12 thought-provoking essays and 12 pieces of beautiful art. You’ll feel inspired every day of the year, with radical historical dates and lots of space for your own plans.
Featuring Josh MacPhee, Ed Mead, Ricardo Levins Morales, Farhan Ahmed, Dio Cramer, David Gilbert, Taller Ahuehuete, Ryan Fatica, Ruby, Sean Swain, N.O. Bonzo, Eric King, Praxis Vgz, Dominque Conway, Xinachtli, Josh Davidson, Jordan Halliday, Leonard Peltier, Zane McNeill, Jessica Sabogal, Dr. Tolbert Small, Roger Peet, and P!nk Bloc Montréal.
Your group can buy 10 or more for the rate of $10 each (or 50 or more for the rate of $9 each) and then sell them for $15, keeping the difference for your organization. Many campaigns, infoshops and projects do this as a way of raising funds and spreading awareness about political prisoners.
About Certain Days:
The Certain Days: Freedom for Political Prisoners Calendar is a joint fundraising and educational project between outside organizers across North America and political prisoner Xinachtli (s/n Alvaro Luna Hernandez) in Texas. We were happy to welcome founding members Herman Bell and Robert Seth Hayes (Rest in Power) home from prison in 2018, and founding member David Gilbert home from prison in 2021. We work from an anti-imperialist, anti-racist, anti-capitalist, feminist, queer- and trans-liberationist position. Learn more and support them at certaindays.org.
On September 10th and 11th, the Chicago-based Midwest Books to Prisoners and Philly ABC held runs in their respective cities. Check out the photos and recaps of these two events at: twitter.com/MidwestBooks2P twitter.com/phillyabc
