Abolition May

Abolition May is a Turtle Island (aka North America)-wide coalition organized around action during May 2021 to demand the abolition of pigs (aka police) from campuses and from Earth. Days of action include May 3 - a day of refusal, and regional and local days of action, culminating on May 25 in a commemoration of the anniversary of George Floyd's death. A specific day of action in Kumeyaay Territory (aka the Tijuana/San Diego region) will be announced soon.

Monday, May 3  is Transnational Day of Refusal. "A coalition of campaigns across Turtle Island, from the east coast to the west and in between, ask you to honor a picket line by absenting yourself from class and otherwise withholding your labor in support of the demand to abolish all campus police. Honoring the picket line could mean: Joining the picket line on your campus // Canceling or refusing to attend a synchronous class // Refusing to watch asynchronous lectures // Refusing to pre-record a class or prepare other materials for later asynchronous use // Refusing to engage in other forms of university-based labor, including email response // Protecting any students, colleagues, and workers from retaliation // Attending a regional walkout action."

Decarcerating Disability: Deinstitutionalization & Prison Abolition

Critical Gender Studies, in collaboration with the Digital Gym, is excited to kick off winter quarter with another "Materializing Abolition: Queer and Feminist Strategies" event! Join us as we host Prof. Liat Ben-Moshe for an event celebrating her recent book publication, Decarcerating Disability: Deinstitutionalization and Prison AbolitionThe event will be an informal conversation on the connections between incarceration, abolition, and disability justice. How does the deinstitutionalization of psychiatric hospitals offer key insights to an anticarceral future? How do carceral logics operate across different institutions? And why is disability justice crucial to the work of abolition? This event will be on Thursday, Feb. 11 at 5 pm PST. We look forward to seeing you there and learning together!
