Abolitionist Organizing in Higher Education

Tuesday, 5 April 6-7:30pm

This panel conversation will bring together organizers, educators and students engaged in abolitionist organizing and education, in and around colleges and universities. While organizing on campuses has long challenged prisons, punishment and police, there have been important organizing efforts that have emerged over the past several years. Education efforts for people in prison and those coming home have also played an important role in advancing possibilities for abolition and decarceration. This conversation looks at how these various efforts emerged, the work they are engaged in, what they have learned in their organizing and education efforts, and to share about building abolitionist organizing and education campuses more generally.


More information, including panelists, is available at the Publics Lab website.
