A nice definition from a disability justice perspective from CAT911:
Abolition is not limited to ending spaces and practices of incarceration and policing. Fundamentally, abolition is also about reimagining new ways of life such that a world in which prisons, policing and other carceral systems as solutions to social problems becomes unthinkable.
We who dream, who listen to be known and communicate to understand. We who choose love, who choose to cultivate hope and trust to nourish our collective power. We who shape change, who know that this is not all there is.
Let's create our abolitionist future together luvs!
It's no secret -- being online kinda sucks!!!
I don't wanna say this space will be completely free from any of that but I'm interested in earnestly fostering an environment where at least we have some semblance of self-awareness and commitment to growth!
