Funds raised by Calendar Commitee will be split between the New York State Task Force on Political Prisoners, Desis Rising Up and Moving, and partner organizations that do direct support work for political prisoners, refugees and immigrants facing detention and deportation, and prisoners rights groups.

In the words of the Calendar committee

The calendar is a project that was initiated by Herman Bell, and has been shaped throughout the process by the ideas of all of the participants in the process by all of our ideas, discussions and analaysis. The outside collectives compile, edit and produce the calendar. All of our members are involved in day to day organizing work, on issues ranging from Palestinian solidarity to gender violence to prisoner justice. We work from an anti-imperialist, anti-racist, feminist, queer and trans positive position. Throughout our productrion process, we seek the input and guidance of the three Political Prisoners involved in the project: Robert Seth Hayes, Herman Bell and David Gilbert. For us, it is extremely important that people on the streets recognize the history of today’s social movements, and how that ties in with solidarity for PPs/POWs. We want to emphasise the ongoing involvement and continued commitment of PPs/POWs in these same movements. We are excited to be in our fourth year of producing the calendar, and we are committed to continuing to raise awareness of Political Prisoners and Prisoners of War in Canada and the United States.
