"Re-Member MOVE: Working towards reconciliation" w/ Dr. Pauline Thompson-Penn State University, Brandywine Campus and Ulysses Slaughter-Independent Reconciliation Strategist

Hosted by the SCRA Criminal Justice Learning Community

Pauline and Ulysses will briefly review the 1978 and 1985 incidents involving the MOVE organization and the City of Philadelphia and will discuss their current efforts towards reconciliation. The 1978 incident resulted in the incarceration of 9 MOVE members (called the MOVE9) with 30-100 year sentences. The 1985 incident resulted in the deaths of 11 MOVE members including 5 children after the Philadelphia police dropped a C4 explosive on the home of the MOVE members. As we approach the 35th anniversary of the 1985 bombing, negotiations are underway to illuminate and right the wrongs of the past. Through intentional and very careful, community networking, key players from both the 78 and 85 events are engaging in a series of delicate discussions and strategic planning that will reveal the scope and depth of this painful, yet powerful redemption process.
