Help Free Dr. Mutulu Shakur!

mutulu-smallMutulu has now been incarcerated for over 35 years. We are making an urgent plea for your support in the next phase of work for Mutulu’s freedom. We need 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:

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 (CAD) that allows for tax-deductible donations by check or money order made out to CAD to P. O. Box 361270, Decatur, GA 30036-1270 with ‘FFMS’ in the memo line or through the PayPal link on the right sidebar of their website.

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

1) U.S. Postal Money Order: Do not send any correspondence with the money order, and checks and cash are not accepted. Make the money order out to “Mutulu Shakur #83205-012” and send to the processing facility at:

Federal Bureau of Prisons

The Bureau of Prisons will return to sender funds that do not have valid payee information provided the envelope has an adequate return address.

2) Western Union: via in-person location, over the phone (dial 1-800-634-3422 and choose option 2), or online at 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.
