Abolition Book Club

What does a world without police or prisons look like? Whether you’re new to the concept of police and prison abolition or have been organizing around it for years, we’d love for you to join us for our newest virtual offering: the Abolition Book Club.

Our first book will be Are Prisons Obsolete? by Angela Davis. In Are Prisons Obsolete?, Davis illustrates how the prison industrial complex relies on the inheritances of slavery, and asks us to imagine a world focused on healing and rehabilitation rather than punishment.
