The PA Department of Corrections has not announced a protocol yet on how to treat political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal or thousands of other prisoners infected with Hepatitis C.
We want to keep up the pressure by giving health care providers an opportunity to explain to the press why giving proper treatment for this silent epidemic is so important. We also plan to video the event and put it up on social media.
If you are in the New York area, please let us know if you can be part of this event.
If you are not available, because you live elsewhere or your schedule does not allow it, you can still participate by sending a comment along with your photo. Comments and photos will be displayed for the benefit of the press. Some comments may be read to the assembled quests.
The press conference will be held at 1199 SEIU New York, 310 West 43rd Street, New York, NY 10036 on Tuesday, Oct 20 starting at 11:30am.
Other details will be shared as they are determined. For more information:
