Family Members of People Murdered by Cops Call on You to:


The revolutionary leader Bob Avakian has said that the words “justifiable homicide” pour gasoline on the already burning wounds suffered by people whose loved ones have been murdered by police. We know this is true because all of us have had to bury loved ones who were killed by cops. And we are writing to urge you to donate generously to support the National Get Organized for an ACTUAL Revolution Tour.

Having to bury loved ones whose lives had been stolen by those who are sworn to “protect and serve” was devastating. It was made even worse by the way the police and the media lied about our loved ones to justify having murdered them. And the system denied us and so many others justice at every turn. All this made clear to us that fundamental change was needed to end murder by police and other horrors this system forces so many people to suffer. And this Tour is all about fundamental change—making revolution.

The people on the Tour have put their lives on hold to travel across the country to spread the message that revolution is not only needed—it is possible. To introduce people to the leadership we have for this revolution in Bob Avakian. And to challenge people to get organized into the movement for an actual revolution.

The Declaration and Call To Get Organized Now For A Real Revolution, distributed by the Tour, says that we are living “in one of those rare times and circumstances” in which a revolution could be possible. If you are someone who can't stand this world the way it is, someone who is sick and tired of so many people being treated as less than human, now is the time that you need to support this Tour. Make a generous donation to the National Get Organized for an ACTUAL Revolution Tour now! This is a moment where your funds and fundraising efforts can have magnified impact.

Thanks in advance for your generous support.

Donate NOW to help put revolution on the map!

As the world burns, do you hunger for a future fit for human beings and the diversity of life on the planet?

Threats of nuclear Armageddon… racist murdering cops, abortion-banning theocrats, anti-LGBTQ terror… All this will only get worse unless and until we make a revolution to get rid of the system of capitalism-imperialism enforcing and furthering this nightmare.

To build this revolution... to make this revolution known... to raise people’s sights requires your financial support.

In this rare time when the rulers of this country are deeply divided and cannot “hold the country together”—the revolution we are working for is urgently necessary, and more possible.

Right now, we are working urgently to put this revolution on the map. This requires funds on a major scale.
