Help Free Dr. Mutulu Shakur!

mutulu-smallMutulu has now been incarcerated for over 30 years. We are making an urgent plea for your support for the next phase of work for Mutulu’s freedom. We need your financial support for his legal defense, commissary, and more.

The quickest and easiest way to send financial support to Mutulu is through the Family and Friends of Mutulu Shakur PayPal by credit card or e-check. Please consider checking the box to make your donation recur on a monthly basis. Even $1 per month would help immensely!

If you *need* your contribution to be tax deductible, FFMS has a partnership with the Community Aid and Development Corp that allows for tax deductible donations by check or money order made out to Community Aid and Development Corp. to P. O. Box 361270, Decatur, GA 30036-1270 with ‘FFMS’ in the memo line.


Send money to Mutulu’s commissary account which he needs to make phone calls, purchase stamps, etc. in one of 3 ways:

1) US postal money order: Do not send any correspondence with the money order. This is the processing facility for Federal prisoners:

Federal Bureau of Prisons
DR. MUTULU SHAKUR #83205-012
PO BOX 474701
DES MOINES, IOWA 50947

The deposit must be in the form of a money order made out to the inmate’s full name and eight-digit register number. The Bureau of Prisons will return funds that do not have valid inmate information to the sender provided the envelope has an adequate return address. Personal checks and cash can not be accepted.

2) Western Union: via in-person location, over the phone (dial 1-800-634-3422 and choose option 2), or online at www.westernunion.com and select “Quick Collect.”  A credit/debit card will be required.  While there is a fee to this service, funds will post no later than the next morning to Mutulu’s account.

3) Money Gram: via in-person location or go to www.moneygram.com/paybills.  Enter the Receive Code for the Federal Bureau of Prisons (7932) and the amount you are sending (up to $300).  For the recipient’s account name, use “83205012Shakur.” First time users will have to set up an account.  A MasterCard or Visa credit card is required.  While there is a fee to this service, funds will post no later than the next morning to Mutulu’s account.
