Through advancing a critical understanding of prison industrial complex 
and abolition, CR has consistently inspired individuals, organizations 
and communities to take creative and practical steps to build a 
liberated future. Alongside other abolitionists, we have achieved many 
victories -- from successfully stopping the construction of new jails in 
New York to Los Angeles, to ending the use of racist gang injunctions in 
Oakland and stopping California's 20-year prison building boom. Our 
campaigns, vision and strategies have been shared and used as 
blue-prints across the US and internationally.

We invite you to join us in celebrating the gains we have made together, 
feeding our minds and our spirits, and preparing for the pitched battle 
of the next 20 years. Every donation, ticket or sponsorship will amplify 
the vision of liberated communities and the fierce, joyful will of our 
people to fight to win.

Bay Area community and to support CR locally and nationally, we are 
asking you to make a donation here or sign up to sponsor the event here.

funded now and into a future free from cages, the violence of policing, 
the dangers of borders and social control.
