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.

In This Rare Time When Revolution Becomes Possible…
DONATE to—and be Part of—the Fall/Winter $30K Fund Drive

An immediate goal now: $5K by Giving Tuesday, November 30

At this time, we must expand our reach to the tens of thousands who do not yet know—and must know about—this revolution and the leadership we have in Bob Avakian.

There is no site like in the world today… where people in this country and internationally can get introduced to and connect with the leadership we have in BA… where people can get a lively scientific analysis of major developments in society and the world, how they relate to the system we live under, what the interests of humanity are, how revolution is the only solution, and how people can and are moving to build toward that revolution. Our bilingual site reaches thousands of Spanish-speaking people the world over.

To fund this—and go even further—we’re raising $30K this fall/winter. Contributing to this drive is a crucial way to be part of this movement for revolution. How you can be part of this:

  • Donate as much as you can—and become a regular sustainer.
  • Reach out to people you know and call on them to donate to
