  Support is Coming Together!

      Wow, THANK YOU ALL for your outpouring of support for Dr. Shakur!

On the phone this week he expressed his gratitude and love for you all, 
and wants you to know that while he appreciates mail he is concentrating 
on his health and is unable to respond to everyone right now. A few 
quick updates we wanted to share with you during Kwanzaa and before the 
new year:

      Spread the Word to Help Us Reach Our Goal

We are now over a third of the way to our fundraising goal for the 
compassionate release work on behalf of Dr. Shakur. As we mentioned in 
the December 2019 Medical and Legal Update 
because the Bureau of Prisons denied him compassionate release on 
December 5th, his legal team is appealing as we speak to have it brought 
before a judge and there is some cost associated with this step.

We also need funds to meet Dr. Shakur's immediate needs since he was 
transferred to the medical facility in Lexington without any of his 
property and he is in need of commissary money to supplement the prison 
meals. We also hope to lend support to family visits.

/*Let's give it another push!*/

        New Film in Development

Crowdfunding now open for a new film highlighting Dr. Shakur's community 

/My name is Talib Tyrone Shakur, I was raised in south Jamaica Queens 
with my mother, and I was 46 years old when I learned I was the son of 
Dr. Mutulu Shakur. Since finding my father, our relationship has fully 
blossomed and I stand with all of you who tirelessly fight for his freedom.

With the support of my father, I am producing a film to aid in bringing 
him home and I'm reaching out today to ask for support to bring our film 
full circle. Those who know my father may know of his long term work to 
bring a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to the United States. In an 
effort to support his work and bring him home, I've set out on a mission 
to reach out to many of the men my father has mentored and impacted over 
the past 30 years of his incarceration. These men tell the stories of 
their experience with my father and show how a Truth and Reconciliation 
can be applied to his life - for his freedom.

To date, we've produced the trailer to our film that you can view on our 
fundraising campaign page. There you can read more about our project, 
the impact your donations will make and view the perks we are offering 
for donations as well as how to be featured in our film as well. On 
behalf of everyone who has worked around the clock to bring us this far, 
THANK YOU for your continued love and support! /
