Disposable from Birth: A Symposium on Anti-Blackness, Call Out Culture, & Prison Abolition

This is an interactive discussion on the intersections between anti-Blackness, prison abolition and current manifestations of call out culture. As we see call out culture being manifested in our online and IRL community spaces, we also see the continued positioning of Blackness as sub human. This discussion will allow participants to envision paths for safety both online and IRL without relying on prison culture to do it.

No one turned away for lack of funds.
