reform. It is time to talk about abolishing prisons in society.
So what's the alternative? This puzzling question often interrupts
further discussion of the prospects for abolition. Why is
it so difficult to imagine alternatives to the current system
of imprisonment? What about building the kind of society that
doesn't need prisons with the redistribution of power and
income, and a decent sense of community that can support every
member. This conference will explore and encourage discussion
about abolition and alternatives to prison over three days.
We look forward to your participation.
