Celebrate the publication of We Do This 'Til We Free Us with a discussion about prison industrial complex (PIC) abolition, seeking justice beyond the criminal punishment system, and finding hope in collective struggle for abolition, featuring contributors and organizers from the book. What if social transformation and liberation isn’t about waiting for someone else to come along and save us? What if ordinary people have the power to collectively free ourselves? In We Do This 'Til We Free Us, Mariame Kaba reflects on the deep work of abolition and transformative political struggle. ———————————————— Speakers: Shira Hassan, Kelly Hayes, Rachel Herzing, Mariame Kaba, Erica Meiners and Tamara K. Nopper. ————————————————————— Order your copy of We Do This 'Til We Free Us here: https://www.haymarketbooks.org/books/1664-we-do-this-til-we-free-us Praise for We Do This 'Til We Free Us: “I want to say this is a ‘generation-defining’ book, but that feels wrong because I know it will be shaping political imaginations for a century or more. It's generations-defining. This is a classic in the vein of Sister Outsider, a book that will spark countless radical imaginations.” — Eve L. Ewing “Mariame Kaba’s clarity, firm-but-gentle guidance, embracing spirit, deep creativity, and love of laughter, demonstrate how abolition is, in deed, presence. Thank goodness for this urgent book.” —Ruth Wilson Gilmore "One of the most fascinating developments during this age of Black Lives Matter is how ‘abolition' has been integrated into mainstream debates on how to change the United States. Yet there is still so much not known or understood about the history, politics and practice of abolition-informed politics. Longtime organizer and educator, Mariame Kaba, is one of the most important voices in the emergent abolitionist movement." —Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor "At once an urgent call to action, a step-by-step guide to the practice of transformative justice, a collection of inspirational interviews and a few lighthearted reflections, this book will significantly advance radical justice work. We Do This ‘Til We Free Us is just what we need and it has arrived right on time." — Beth Richie ————————————————————— This event is sponsored by Haymarket Books and The Marguerite Casey Foundation.
