The MOVE 9 need your help

how to get involved
ngs you can do to support MOVE
Join our postage committee, send a donation towards postage or send us 37 cent stamps.
Photo-copy information or send a donation (even a Kinko card) toward the cost of photo-copying.
Send donations directly to the MOVE Nine for postage, photo copying, and to pay for their pre-paid calls (It costs them anywhere from $2.25 just to connect and then about $0.22 to $0.45 a minute after that, depending on where they are calling. This racks up quickly in order to keep general contact with their family). To send them donations, you must send money orders only.
Write in to different news media/papers in your area and in Philadelphia and in the papers near the prisons where the MOVE Nine are being held demanding justice for MOVE.
Encourage Bookstores and/or organizations to buy our book 25 Years On the MOVE in bulk at a discounted rate so that MOVE information is available in your area.
