A Protest Against Repression
The CurbFest for Political Prisoners connects organizers with community members to raise awareness of political prisoners and share ways to get involved in the movement. It features local DJs, Performers and Artists. In Philly the first CurbFest will take place in Germantown on September 18, 2021 with 9 curb locations near Germantown and Chelten Avenues. In Boston the first Curbfest will take place on September 25, 2021. Where will you host your Curbfest? (Click below to learn about the team or donate.)
Curbfest is the first project of “Mentoring the OG Revolutionaries,” a collective of young organizers who are collaborating with seasoned organizers on political education projects. We are working in with the Coalition to Bring Mumia Home, Maroon Party for Liberation (working to bring home Russell Maroon Shoatz), Original Black Panther Members, The Jericho Movement, Prison Radio, Ubuntu ⇔ Freedom, The Black Philly Radical Collective, The Abolitionist Law Center, The Black Alliance for Peace, and Mary’s Daughter for the Formerly Incarcerated.
In Your Neighborhood
We invite you to host a Curbfest of your own, and to make use of the work we put in for the first Curbfest in Philly. You can access all the designs and design standards for Curbest stored in a Google Drive link. This toolkit will include full designs for most print materials and templates for some, to make it easier for you to host a Curbfest of your own. If you do plan to host your own curbfest let us know so we can support you and get you the link. Just complete the form on the next slide. (Click below to access the form or donate.)
