From Dreams to Practice: Abolition in our lifetimes

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

What time is it on the clock of the world? This time of triple pandemics - of police violence, coronavirus, and of unprecedented economic crisis - is calling us to put our abolition dreams into practice. It is calling on us to divest once and for all - financially, ideologically, emotionally - from systems and structures of violence, and to invest in what will make it possible for our communities to survive current conditions - and those that are coming.

A nationwide uprising to #DefundthePolice, #AbolishICE, #DefendBlackLives and #BuildBlackFutures is opening portals into a future founded on genuine and sustainable security for all, a world free from the violence of surveillance, policing, punishment, and exile. How can we seize this moment to sharpen and advance our visions of abolition, radically reimagine and reinvest in safety, and build the skills, relationships and infrastructures we need to be architects of this new world? Join abolitionist dreamers, thinkers and practitioners for glimpses into a policing free future that is increasingly present.
