What is the POCC?
The Prisoners of Conscience Committee was founded by Fred Hampton, Jr. (son of Black Panther Fred Hampton) during the nine years he spent in jail in the 1990's. In the words of Chairman Fred, Jr: "[The POCC] was literally birthed from behind enemy lines, its birth canal was the concentration camps, its umbilical cords are the prison chains." Now a national organization, the P.O.C.C engages in revolutionary work
throughout the country, both through their own programs and through coalition building with other revolutionary peoples and organizations.
