Want to give your loved ones holiday gifts that make an impact in the world? Donate to Critical Resistance (CR) this holiday season and give your loved ones the gift that keeps on giving: abolition!

In order to build a strong international movement to abolish the prison industrial complex (PIC), we need a dynamic leftist ecosystem of different formations and fronts of resistance. Every year, CR creates organizing resources to strengthen and fuel movements for liberation and to make PIC abolition common sense. These movement building resources include tips, guides, best practices, and strategies for organizing and campaign work against the PIC. We aim to distribute these resources far and wide to be applied in various local contexts internationally, and to cross-share analysis and reflection for landscape assessment to better shift our organizing terrains.

CR compiled this collection of resources with Interrupting Criminalization and Project Nia to aid in evaluation and reflection for PIC abolitionists. Assembled for the Summer 2022 Allied Media Conference, this collection is full of excerpts from resources frequently used as jumping-off points when thinking strategically about abolitionist organizing. Download from CR’s website here and use widely and boldly!

We have plenty of hoodies, crewnecks, shirts, and totes for purchase. You can treat yourself  or gift it to a loved one. Buying CR merch is a great way to sustain CR’s organizing and wear your abolitionist heart on your sleeve!
