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.

Arizona Organizing Project: End Phoenix Camping Ordinance!

Artwalk, First Friday. March 4, 2011. Conspire Art Collective, Phoenix.

These folks did an awesome job raising awareness about the criminalization of homelessness down at Conspire during the First Friday Artwalk in Phoenix this weekend. There are some good shots of it all over the internet; mine came out kind of dark and grainy, so I messed with them a little to be creative.

The Arizona Organizing Project is headquartered at 125 N. 11th Ave., Phoenix, AZ.

Rock on, broth
ers and sisters!

Rock on!
