Deepening our abolition practice

A space to get clear on what being an abolitionist means to you & what you would love your practice to look like in your community.

Abolitionists believe that prisons and police are systems designed to uphold oppression. By getting rid of the systems of oppression, a future rooted in equality is possible.

“Abolition is really about rethinking the kind of future we want, the social future, the economic future, the political future. It’s about revolution, I would argue.” - angela davis

We stand on the shoulders of giants

Abolition is a practice that dates back hundreds of years and even the modern abolition movement has deep roots that we are working to learn from. We are learning from this rich wisdom and grateful for the visionary leaders who came before us. We recognize this work has historically been done by Black women and non-binary folks and we do our best to cite, credit, and quote everyone who we draw inspiration from. We see our role as connectors and supporters is to bring more people to this work and be a part of a supportive community as we learn together.
