Penn Community for Justice organizes to demand that the University of Pennsylvania institutionalize police free alternatives to public safety, divest from the prison industrial complex and make Payments in Lieu of Taxes (PILOTs) to the Education Equity Fund in support of Philadelphia public schools.

Penn Community for Justice Fund

Film Project: 

The film project, "Testimony: 52nd St. and the Invisible Violence of Penn," focuses on the May 31st crackdown on 52nd St. where campus Police aided the Philadelphia Police in a violent assault against West Philly residents. T hrough telling this story we aim to raise awareness about the damaging impact of wealthy unchecked institutions within our community and build momentum towards enacting change.

Goal: $3000

UPDATE: With your help we have successfully raised almost half the funds needed to complete this project. We are looking for your help to finish post-production and move forward with distribution. Your donations are much appreciated!

  • Payment for community voices and advocates
  • Community care items (Protective equipment for in person actions such as masks and hand sanitizer, water, etc.)
