The Prison Abolition Issue

In our special Prison Abolition Issue, we asked prisoners across Canada and the U.S. to reflect on the question, "Can you imagine a world without prisons?" They write about surviving COVID outbreaks; unequal treatment of women and men inside; prisons as a tool of colonialism; the war on drugs and coercive drug treatment programs; what it would take to heal intergenerational trauma; participating in hunger strikes and prisoners' committees; and fighting to abolish prisons from inside them.
