This week marks the 24th anniversary of Critical Resistance’s first conference in 1998, “Critical Resistance: Beyond the Prison Industrial Complex.”
In honor of our first organizing conference, we share Dylan Rodriguez’s reflection on the conference organizing, which he spoke on for one of our donor webinars in 2018, “CR Conference History.”
