Abolition 101

April 10, 2021

Join us for a political education event, Abolition 101, the first in a monthly series called “What is Abolition?”  
 
Summer 2020 saw an explosion of protests across the country as the police continued to murder unarmed Black people in cold blood. The protests against injustice sparked a national conversation about the role of police in our communities and schools. For some, this may have been the first time they had heard the words abolition in relation to police and prisons. What is prison abolition? How does this inform our work in EBDSA? We as socialists know that abolition is a critical part of a socialist world. Come discuss and explore questions about abolition with other socialists and our very own resident abolitionist Rob Connell! 
 
Presented in collaboration with EBDSA political education committee and EBDSA Racial Solidarity committee. 
Readings
Angela Davis, Are Prisons Obsolete Introduction (12 pgs)
What is Prison Abolition?
Yes, We Literally Mean Abolish the Police - Mariame Kaba in NYT
Advice to New Abolitionists - Critical Resistance
