Revolutionary Study: Reflections on the Abolitious Study Group
Time:5 PM to 6:30 PM
*BIPOC Attendees Only Please*
“Abolitious” is a group of Santa Cruz POC community members who came together to learn about the history, politics, and practice of abolition. Our experiences of studying together are what inspired the development of the Abolition Fair. In this panel, you’ll learn about our experience of working through Abolition Journal‘s “If You’re New to Abolition” study guide together over the summer of 2020. Our goal was to model a community space of collective learning founded upon trust, care, and a commitment to radical social transformation. We also hope to use this event to support the development of a new cohort of abolition study group members! Please note: This event is limited to BIPOC attendees.
Abolitious is a group of Santa Cruz BIPOC community members who came together to learn about the history, politics, and practice of abolition. We began our group by following Abolition Journal’s 6-week multimedia study guide to learn about the histories of the prison industrial complex, mass incarceration, police brutality, and the ongoing struggle towards liberation from systems of harm. We join the abolitionists who have advanced this work for decades and welcome new partners in our study and action.
