Black Abolitionist Futures: Reading & Discussion Group
- 8:00 pm
14 December 2020
Online | Free
There has been a huge uptake in interest in abolitionist ideas, as abolitionist discussions enter more mainstream conversations.
More people are questioning whether prisons are the best response to harms in society and whether the police actually function to bring about a safer society.
But how might we need to alter our thinking, practices and social institutions to build a world without prisons and policing?
Session four taking place on the 14th is about Transformative Justice & Abolition
A reading list has been compiled to introduce you to abolitionist ideas via short, accessible and introductory texts, podcasts and videos.
We hope they spark informed discussions of abolitionist ideas to take with you to work places, campaign meetings, and conversations with friends and family. They have been updated to include more UK resources.
We recognise that these discussions can be difficult—either triggering our traumatic experiences or challenging long-held beliefs. As facilitators, we vow to be in the struggle together, providing support and guidance through these moments.
