A Day in Solidarity with African People is a national fundraising campaign for solidarity with reparations, justice, liberation and self-determination for African people everywhere. Events are taking place in Florida, Chicago, New York, Oakland and Philly.

Take the pledge of solidarity supporting the Uhuru Movement programs for African self-reliance by giving a minimum of $10 towards the programs of the Uhuru Movement.

The African community in the US is bearing the brunt of the economic crisis - with an ever-widening income gap, massive unemployment, foreclosures and escalating police violence. It's time to take the pledge of solidarity and make a commitment to reparations to the African community.

States Uhuru Solidarity Movement president Stephanie Midler, "This system isn't going to solve the problems it has created for the African community or for anyone. We support the Uhuru Movement in building African self-reliance programs that include economic development institutions to create community commerce, community gardens to provide access to healthy food, freedom schools that offer community-based, meaningful curriculum, and independent media like Uhuru News, Uhuru Radio and The Burning Spear Newspaper. This is the movement that is leading the creation of a new world for all of humanity."

Omali Yeshitela and Penny Hess will also be speaking at "World Hunger: Made in the US" on Saturday, October 15th at the Uhuru House, an event being held from 5 to 9pm at 7911 MacArthur Blvd in Oakland.
