*OUR HISTORY + OUR IMPACT*
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.
