July 12 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
About the Writing to Abolition Series
Following the Floyd rebellions of 2020, we saw ideas about the abolition of policing and imprisonment reach new levels of attention. Leading up to and following Summer 2020, writing about prison industrial complex abolition helped shape the ongoing conversations about how we think about safety and addressing harm. Join CPE for a series of events featuring new books on prison industrial complex abolition that help us consider the case for abolition and how we can put these politics in action. All events will be held online.
