Voices from Inside

Part of the mission of Critical Resistance is to uplift and amplify the resistance and  perspectives of those most targeted by the prison industrial complex (PIC). We regularly integrate this analysis into our projects and campaigns for abolition and towards building alternative community structures of support and accountability. From imprisoned contacts we have gathered (and then publicly shared) guidance, research, analysis, and testimony that has propelled our campaigns forward.
