We invite people organizing to end mass incarceration, detention, and deportation. We invite people organizing to end violence against women, transgender, and gender non-conforming people. And we invite all those people whose lives demand that we organize to end all these systems of oppression at the same time.
In this town hall event, we will use art, music, storytelling, and small group discussions to reflect honestly together on the fears that divide us and to build a shared vision for community safety and individual safety that doesn’t rely on imprisonment.
The town hall is part of RELEASE, an ongoing exhibition and program series that explores the intersection of gender justice and mass incarceration. RELEASE is co-presented by Bread & Roses Community Fund and the Leeway Foundation. RELEASE aims to provide shared spaces for women, transgender, and gender non-conforming survivors of the prison industrial complex, local artists, cultural producers, and activists to critically reflect and build power for change. On view until June 30, 2015. Schedule your visit by calling 215.545.4078. Click here to find out more.
