Abolition is not only about dispelling the carceral system but also replacing it with systems and ways of being that promote healing, community and freedom. Practice the pillars of abolition and zoom into everyday life situations where we have the power to invalidate retributive systems and embrace abolition. Themes of accountability, relationships, self love, community responsibility and harm including sexual violence will be discussed through an abolitionist lens.
