prison abolitionism

ending the prison industrial complex

The prison industrial complex undermines our democracy, and is intertwined with racism over the course of U.S. history. What alternatives exist?

Participants are highly encouraged to read Angela Davis' Are prisons obsolete? and reflect on the questions raised in this text, along with one other reading listed here.

For Eating for Liberation, we also encourage conversation on the right to food and the possibilities for shifts towards plant-based eating in existing systems.
