All Our Trials: Prisons, Policing, and the Feminist Fight to End Violence
June 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
During the 1970s, grassroots women activists in and outside of prison forged a radical politics against gender violence and imprisonment. All Our Trials: Prisons, Policing, and the Feminist Fight to End Violence (University of Illinois Press, 2019) explores the work of these activists who placed criminalized women, and the types of violence they confronted, at the heart of their organizing.
Join Bay Area organizers and activists in conversation with author, Emily Thuma, for an event that puts Thuma’s new book, All Our Trials, Prisons, Policing, and the Feminist Fight to End Violence in dialogue with contemporary campaigns against imprisonment and policing.
Emily Thuma will be joined by:
