Police & Prison Abolition Pt. 1

Sh*t Talks by Chicago Votes

Episode notes

In the wake of the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin, the movement for Black Lives re-ignited, gaining support and action globally. Defunding police departments and even abolishing the police entered mainstream conversation. As we pay homage to our ancestors and the work that came before us envisioning a new world, Damon Williams, Chima “Naira” Ikoro, and Jordan Esparza break down abolition, the history of police and prisons, and how we are that much closer to actually getting free.
