Rooted In Resistance: How movements & leaders blossom in the places they’re not supposed to grow

July 25, 2020
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

People who have struggled against oppression within the Prison-Industrial Complex become leaders of our struggles against the PIC outside—from challenging capitalist ways of thinking that perpetuate oppression, to embracing life-affirming values and principles rooted in resistance. At this NYC TJ Hub session, we invite you to join a conversation with the director of Releasing Aging People in Prison (RAPP), Jose Saldana, and co-founder Laura Whitehorn about their work building transformative relationships, practices of accountability, and networks of community care inside jails and prisons. 

In addition to guests Jose and Laura, the event will include messages from currently incarcerated organizers.

This event will include live closed captioning & ASL interpretation.
