Join us for this deep dive into the history of slavery, prisons and movements of resistance with a focus on community and environmental impact and strategies for abolition today.
This workshop will go into an in-depth history of the prison industrial complex. Well discuss how prisons are directly connected to and in present form originate from chattel slavery and how they have nothing to do with rehabilitation.
Well examine the implications and impacts that prisons have upon community safety which we know to be detrimental. And also discuss some of the organizations and victories against the prison industrial slave complex.
