Facilitated by the Disability Project

This 2-part series uses small group break outs, informal political education conversations, and stakeholder stories, to engage participants around the following key themes:

  • A top-level overview of how Ableism operates as a hub of multiple supremacy systems ; anti – Black racism,misogyny, the hated of the poor,  and transphobia as examples,  working to underpin and feed mass incarceration, state, population control and violence .

  • An examination of the core elements, political analysis and identification that make up the  “Disability Carceral State” and how a DJ informed Prison Industrial Complex Abolition movement will create more holistic analysis, more  robust strategy and campaigns .

  • How DJ aligned philanthropic commitments are needed to resource the strategic opportunities, narrative shifts, leadership development and organizing potential in support of disability informed Prison Industrial Complex Abolition work.

*As each of these sessions is connected to the other, we strongly encourage participants to attend both.
