We are living in a historic moment. Across the country, in part due to the movement to #DefundThePolice, there is growing momentum in support of Abolition—an ideology and a practice. To guide us in this moment, we must all educate ourselves on the history of the movement and the current ways in which we can participate and contribute.
What is abolition? How does it differ from reform? How can we ensure the changes we call for do not entrench the very institutions we wish to transform? How can we, as individuals, actively participate and contribute?
To explore these questions and more, join Bridgette Simpson, Micah Herskind, and The Digital Abolitionist team for this introduction to abolition.
