Suzanne Ross

Dear friends, In the introductions to WRL's recent book, We Have Not Been Moved, the mini-biography of contributor Suzanne Ross was inadvertently cut short. At this time when her work to free imprisoned journalist Mumia Abu-Jamal has become more crucial than ever, we wanted to correct that omission by including her full mini-biography here, as well as including the web address of the coalition to free Mumia. Thanks for your attention to this matter, and to helping to build the Mumia movement. -- Matt Meyer, Editor
