In celebration of SONG’s 25th anniversary and Critical Resistance’s 20 years of abolitionist movement-building, Critical Resistance (CR) is partnering with SONG for a weekend of community-oriented events. Our goal is to uplift the past legacies, present struggles, and future commitment to abolitionist strategy and struggle with SONG’s membership and Critical Resistance friends in Atlanta. The events will be held in conjunction with the conversations on abolition in the South that are taking place during the American Studies Association conference. Please join us!
