How has the prison become, in the words of scholar, activist and prison abolitionist Angela Y. Davis, “an inevitable and permanent feature of our social lives”? And how can we imagine different futures that break the violent hold of the prison-industrial complex? Abolitionists Sarah Aviah Day (co-author of Abolition Revolution; Sisters Uncut) and Dylan Rodriguez (author of Forced Passages, Suspended Apocalypse, White Reconstruction; No Cops on Campus) draw insights from their writing and activism to show us how abolitionist praxis envisions and creates new, anti-carceral futures.
