Abolition Caucus

Our mission is dedicated to reimagining societal responses to harm and criminalization through an abolitionist lens; we work on eliminating institutions within the criminal legal systems that perpetuate violence, such as prisons and police, while simultaneously deepening our understanding of the systems that allow these institutions to exist.
