May 13, 2015 marks 30 years since the unconscionable bombing and murder of my MOVE family by the US government. We don’t intend to allow officials or anybody else to forget what happened that day or what is really behind it- our unrelenting fight for the release of our innocent family members known as The MOVE 9. For this reason, we are asking our supporters, and anybody who understands the need to take a stand for justice, to be at our program here in Philadelphia on May 13, 2015.
