The Road to Abolition: An Introduction to Prison Industrial Complex Abolition

With Critical Resistance and the Chicago Community Bond Fund
Thursday, June 8, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
637 S. Dearborn, Chicago
RSVP on Facebook

As we take on Deadly Exchange, we need to partner with and support organizations and communities that have been leading the work against policing and for real safety. That's why we're joining other organizations in co-sponsoring the Chicago Community Bond Fund (CCBF)'s event hosing Jess Healey of Critical Resistance for an introduction to prison industrial complex abolition. This workshop will be one of many leading up to a larger panel discussion in November led by Angela Y. Davis and Ruthie Wilson Gilmore. Critical Resistance is a national organization dedicated to building a movement to abolish the prison industrial complex and end our reliance on imprisonment, policing and surveillance.

This workshop is an amazing opportunity to explore the ways in which an abolitionist framework can inform our Deadly Exchange campaign, and for us to learn more about how Deadly Exchange fits into the wider work against policing and deportations.
