How else could we term the work to ask, in the words of abolitionist, organizer, and educator Mariame Kaba, “What can we imagine for ourselves and the world?” Indeed, “the fight to save your life is,” as BLM cofounder Patrisse Cullors has named it, “a spiritual fight.” In this talk, Prof. Laura McTighe joins us for a conversation about religion and abolitionist praxis. She will share lessons from her now more twenty years of work on the frontlines of our country’s Black feminist-led movements to build a world without prisons, and will engage us all in reflecting on how we can work to make abolition in our everyday lives. Bring your questions, bring stories from your own work, bring your dreams for a world otherwise…
This will be a creative space for exploring together some of our country’s most innovative theories of change and the invitation they offer to us all. Participants are strongly encouraged to read the article, "Abolition is sacred work" beforehand.
