We encourage participants to view the film “Just Mercy” which is available for free on Prime over the next 30 days. This film will be used as a grounding for this discussion. The focus of this important session is on carceral experiences and the abolitionist movement. We will be joined by the incredible activist, Charlene Carruthers who will share important guidance for those that are interested in engaging in abolitionist activism. Charlene A. Carruthers is a Black, queer feminist community organizer and writer with over 15 years of experience in racial justice, feminist and youth leadership development movement work.
