More about Isue 25 of the Abolitionist: 

Welcome to Issue 25 of The Abolitionist! This issue we delve into “Policing and Abolition” with hard hitting pieces from powerful authors like Fred Moten, Robin D.G. Kelley, Rachel Herzing, Aida Seif al-Dawla, Ali Issa, and Chanelle Gallant (see below for full list), who lend a critical eye to the various movements against policing. Their insights are particularly impactful as community organizing against the cops continues to grow “After August 9,” as Herzing’s piece is titled, when Ferguson and the rest of the country rose up against the murder of Michael Brown.

The Abolitionist is always available in Spanish! 

Also, mark your calendars for February 9th, our next volunteer work party. We definitely need the help as we quick off this new year of PIC abolition work in Portland.
