Sundiata Acoli will turn 85 years old on January 14, 2022. He has been in prison since 1973. It’s a moral disgrace! On November 26th, Rev. Lukata Mjumbe started an emergency “freedom fast” from all food. He is on day 43 and needs your help, support, and solidarity. Will join us for at least one day?

We are asking clergy and other committed comrades, friends, and family to publicly fast in solidarity on Sundiata’s birthday, Friday, January 14th. In fasting together, we will seek to publicly send a powerful message of moral solidarity that we must #BringSundiataHome now!

As you may know, January 15th marks the beginning of MLK, Jr. weekend. Others may choose to fast through to the federal MLK holiday on Monday, January 17th. We are asking you to commit to fasting at least ONE DAY on January 14th however you are able to (i.e. 24 hours, sunup to sundown, from food and water, social media, etc.)

We would like to share the information widely and publicize the call as well as the names of those who commit to the “freedom fast” on social media. Use the hashtag #FreedomFastForSundiata.
