Sundiata’s birthday is Jan. 14th – wish him well & #BringSundiataHome

Sundiata Acoli turns 84 years old Jan. 14th, 2021. He has been incarcerated for 47 years.

Please help us spread the word, and by demanding his release.

Please take a moment to send Sundiata a letter saying happy birthday (most federal prisons won’t allow in postcards or cards anymore), to remind him he is loved and not forgotten.

Sundiata is both a former Black Panther Party member as well as former mathematician and computer analyst, who at every stage in his life has worked to help people.  Sundiata, like so many others, is a victim of the FBI’s COINTELPRO efforts.

Black people make up 38.6% of all the people incarcerated in Federal prisons, yet they are just 13.4% of the total US population (FBOP statistics). Sundiata Acoli is a part of that 38.6%.

Because #BlackLivesMatter, we demand the release of Sundiata Acoli. Sundiata Acoli’s continued incarceration for 47 years is a drain on resources and he deserves to be free.

The time is now to release aging and ill incarcerated people. Sundiata has already suffered from COVID-19 and needs our immediate support.
