The prison-industrial complex, in all its forms, including; immigrant detention centers, city and county jails, as well as state and federal prisons, must be abolished. This is a social evil that must be eradicated. The prison-industrial complex does not keep the community safe; it profits the elite while ravaging our communities.
We are committed to ending racism, classism, patriarchy, ableism, cis-gendered privilege and ALL other interrelated forms of oppression. We recognize the prison-industrial complex is a racist institution, trans prisoners are especially vulnerable, and that women currently have the highest increase in rate of incarceration.
All prisoners, regardless of their innocence or guilt, are worthy of dignity and support.
Creating a community of resistance, support, love and mutual aid across the razor wire is a revolutionary act.
Transformative justice, restorative justice, non-violent conflict resolution, forgiveness and community rehabilitation can and will replace the prison-industrial complex.
Supporting prison reforms likely to lead to the eventual complete abolition of the prison industrial complex, such as amnesty programs, abolition of solitary confinement past 15 days, decriminalization of non-violent crimes, etc., can and will lead to an eventual abolition of prisons.
Supporting acts of resistance behind the razor wire, and letting the voices, needs actions and desires of prisoners be amplified.
Building broad coalition and community for all who wish to support prisoners or eradicate prisons.
Engaging in peaceful actions and demonstrations to achieve these goals.
