Ruth Wilson Gilmore’s work has led the way in showing that abolition is a practical program for urgent change based in the needs, talents, and dreams of vulnerable people. Scholars and community organizers join her for a conversation about decarceration and community-based approaches to generating well-being and addressing harm.
Roundtable discussants will include Angélica Cházaro (School of Law, University of Washington), Shaun Glaze (Research Director, King County Equity Now), and Megan Ybarra (Geography, UW). Introduced by Gillian Harkins (English, UW); moderated by Chandan Reddy (Gender, Women & Sexuality Studies, UW).
