The 'Friends of Marcia Powell' are autonomous groups and individuals engaging in prisoner outreach, informal advocacy, and organized protest and direct actions in a sustained campaign to: promote prisoner rights and welfare in America; engage the Arizona public in a creative and thoughtful critique of our system of "justice;” deconstruct the prison industrial complex; and dismantle this racist, classist patriarchy...

Retiring "Free Marcia Powell"

As of December 2, 2010 (with occasional exceptions) I'm retiring this blog to direct more of my time and energy into prisoner rights and my other blogs; I just can't do anyone justice when spread so thin. I'll keep the site open so folks can search the archives and use the links, but won't be updating it with new posts. If you're looking for the latest, try Arizona Prison Watch. Most of the pieces posted here were cross-posted to one or both of those sites already.

Thanks for visiting. Peace out - Peg.

APRIL 23, 2011: DREAMSCAPE, Phoenix.

Word is that this is worth going to after the SB1070 protest...


"Dreamscape" (good blog post about it) addresses issues of racism, police brutality, and injustice against 'minorities' in the United States. Using a hip hop style including a DJ, dance, poetry, and theatre, "Dreamscape" tells the story of a 19-year old black woman shot to death by police, while she slept in her car. All too familiar to Phx these days...

Up and coming Tomas Sosa of Soul Phenomenal opens the show with spoken word! DJ Alkeme spinning outside. Live graffiti art and dance. Join in!

Dialogue to follow. Come prepare to speak your mind!

Saturday, April 23
7 pm (show)
6:30 pm (arrive early for the outside pre-show)
$8 advance/ $10 door
