Oakland Education Association: “Do the Right Thing”

The following email was sent to Philadelphia District Attorney, Larry Krasner, by OEA President Keith Brown.

You can reach Larry Krasner at DA_Central@phila.gov.

Dear District Attorney Krasner,

Teachers and educators call on you to do the right thing. Do not stand in the way of justice for Mumia Abu-Jamal.  Do not appeal Judge Tucker’s decision. As a progressive attorney you ran for Philadelphia District Attorney on a platform that included standing for justice, not just for convictions. You promoted reviewing past convictions and freeing the wrongfully convicted. In Philadelphia, Abu-Jamal’s frame-up stands out as the city’s most notorious wrongful conviction. I urge you to allow Mumia Abu-Jamal to go forward with re-arguing his appeals, which Judge Tucker states “would best serve the appearance of justice.”
Keith D. Brown
