You’re invited on March 25 for the RELEASE Town Hall on Gender Justice and Mass Incarceration.
“We invite people organizing to end mass incarceration, detention, and deportation. We invite people organizing to end violence against women, transgender, and gender non-conforming people. And we invite all those people whose lives demand that we organize to end all these systems of oppression at the same time.
In this town hall event, we will use creative arts expression, and small group discussions to reflect honestly together on the fears that divide us and to build a shared vision for community safety and individual safety that doesn’t rely on imprisonment.”
Here are the details:
Wednesday, March 25, 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Friends Center, 1501 Cherry Street
The space is fully wheelchair accessible.
Childcare and food will be provided.
This town hall is part of RELEASE, an ongoing exhibition and program series that explores the intersection of gender justice and mass incarceration. RELEASE is co-presented by Bread & Roses Community Fund and the Leeway Foundation. RELEASE aims to provide shared spaces for women, transgender, and gender non-conforming survivors of the prison industrial complex, local artists, cultural producers, and activists to critically reflect and build power for change.
