CHURCH OF THE ADVOCATE
An anchor in largely African-American North Philadelphia, the first Episcopal Church in the world to ordain women, the George W. South Memorial Church of the Advocate is a landmark in the religious, social and architectural history of the United States. Built as a memorial to the merchant and civil leader George W. South, the church was the centerpiece of a sprawling complex including a chapel, parish house, curacy and rectory. Once intended to serve as the Episcopal Cathedral of Philadelphia, The Church of the Advocate is one of the best American examples of Gothic Revival style and the only major one of its period based systematically on French sources.
MUMIA ABU JAMAL/ICFFMAJ
The Free Mumia Abu-Jamal Coalition (NYC) is a group of individuals and organizations in New York organizing for the freedom of Mumia Abu-Jamal based on the evidence showing he is innocent. Join us to learn more and work for Mumia’s freedom.
FREE MUMIA ABU-JAMAL COALITION, NYC
AIMS & PRINCIPLES
1. We believe that Mumia Abu-Jamal is innocent and should be released immediately.
2. We also believe that Mumia Abu-Jamal deserves the day in court which he has lackedso far; at the very least he is entitled to a new trial and a hearing of all the evidence in his case.
3. We also support campaigns against the abuses of the present social and political system which Mumia’s case highlights: racism, the death penalty, the brutality of the police, and the unjust imprisoning of political activists.
4. To achieve these goals most effectively, we aim to build a democratic organization with collective work and equal power and responsibility among its members. While the Coalition is autonomous, we also recognize that Mumia makes the ultimate decisions in his case, including the selection of his lawyers. In this respect we take our lead from Mumia himself and his long-time political representative, International Concerned Friends and Family of Mumia Abu-Jamal.
5. We also recognize that people hold a variety of views on Mumia’s case. We believe that anyone can join the Coalition provided that he or she understands that the U.S. criminal justice system has treated Mumia unfairly.
6. Finally, in order for the Coalition to function smoothly and democratically, we establish procedural rules for members. Among these is a rule against behind-your-back badmouthing. Members and their organizations are expected to discuss their differences openly.

Cease Fire NJ
Ceasefire NJ has been at the cutting edge of fighting to stop gun violence in our schools and communities for over 20 years. We led a five-year campaign that culminated with New Jersey becoming the first state to pass a Childproof Handgun bill. A Princeton University study showed that legislation like ours could prevent school shootings like those above, and estimated it could save the lives of over 3,000 of our precious children each year!
But we can only move forward to make sure the Childproof Handgun bill and similar legislation to stop gun trafficking is passed and fully implemented with your help. Please make as generous a donation as possible to Ceasefire NJ right now, so we can enter the New Year with the organizational resources to take on this urgent challenge.

Million Mom March Chapters
Million Mom March Chapters
What started as one of the largest marches on Washington (read our history), is now a national network of 75 Chapters around the U.S. that work locally, yet stand together, in their fight against gun violence and the devastation it causes. As part of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, the Million Mom March Chapters believe that:
- all Americans have the right to be safe from gun violence in their homes, neighborhoods, schools, and places of work and worship.
- all children have the right to grow up in environments free from the threat of gun violence.
- gun violence is a public health crisis that harms not only the physical, but also the spiritual, social, and economic health of our families and communities.
- the availability and lethality of guns make death or severe injury more likely in domestic violence, criminal activity, suicide attempts, and unintentional shootings.
- it is possible to reduce the number of deaths and injuries caused by gun violence with reasonable, common sense policy.
