On March 30, 2020, Critical Resistance and a powerful cast of movement partners came together for “Organizing Against Toxic Imprisonment in the Face of Covid-19,” a webinar rapidly organized to bring us all together and prepare to fight the dual crises of a pandemic and people living in cages.
This past year included uprisings against policing, surges in creative socially-distanced organizing, fiery grassroots electoral organizing, dogged commitment to community needs through mutual aid and state advocacy, and staggering loss. In this year’s webinar, we will learn from organizers across the country who are fighting against imprisonment, policing, surveillance, immigration criminalization; from each of their vantage points in the abolitionist struggle in order to reflect on the past year and uplift lessons from specific campaigns. Come learn about ways to strengthen your campaigns and how to support our communities inside and outside prisons during the pandemic.
Moderated by Woods Ervin, Critical Resistance
We want to express our deep appreciation to you all for supporting CR and our movements in this time. Only together can we win.
