      Lecture by RUTH WILSON GILMORE! Envisioning Abolition: Social Justice Organizing for Vulnerable Households, Communities, and Workers

      In this talk, Dr. Gilmore will explore how visions of abolition guide and connect organizing across a range of social justice struggles. Examples highlight: environmental justice, public sector labor unions, farm workers, undocumented households, criminalized youth, and community based approaches to prevent and resolve gender and interpersonal violence. The vivid stories show that abolition is a practical program for urgent change based on the needs, talents, and dreams of vulnerable people.
