Please join CUNY School of Law’s Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild in an open conversation with community members critical in the movement towards Prison Abolition. It is our objective to hold an honest and intersectional discussion that encourages our communities to reflect on the challenges facing the movement for prison abolition. In this space, we will strive to imagine a world without prisons, and inspire those wary of prison abolition to reconsider a punitive paradigm to problems that largely have their root in social and economic systems of oppression.

Speakers:

Abraham Paulos, Communications Director, Black Alliance for Just Immigration

Cory Greene, Co-Founder, H.O.L.L.A. (How Our Lives Link Together!)

Justine “Taz” Moore, Co-Founder/Member, National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls

Tray “Rock” Johns, National Director, Black and Pink; Member, National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls

Gabriel Arkles, Core Collective Member, Sylvia Rivera Law Project and Senior Staff Attorney, ACLU LGBT & HIV Project

Access Notes: CUNY School of Law has a wheelchair/mobility device accessible entrance, and there is elevator access to the 2nd floor. The Auditorium is also accessible, but there is a slight decline from the entrance of the Auditorium towards the front. CUNY Law is unfortunately not a scent-free building, but we are encouraging attendees to create a scent-free atomopshere in the auditorium.

If any interpretation or visual/audio support is needed, please reach out to nlg@mail.law.cuny.edu!

Co-sponsored by: Outlaws, Labor Coalition, Police Accountability Organization, Students for Justice in Palestine, Luis DeGraffe Racial & Social Justice Orientation, CUNY Law Review, Parole Preparation Project, NLG NYC, Brooklyn Law School NLG, Cardozo Law School NLG, and National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Girls
