Sep 26: A Workshop on Abolition + Decarceration: Love Letters to Movement Leaders

September 26 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

A Workshop on Abolition + Decarceration: Love Letters to Movement Leaders
Saturday, September 26, 10am PT / 1pm ET

REGISTER

Join 18 Million Rising, Survived and Punished, and Asian Prisoner Support Committee and write love letters for abolition!

Recommended $15-$20 donation. We strongly encourage you to give the amount that is right for you. Your donation will support Asian Prisoner Support Committee, Survived and Punished, and 18 Million Rising. Funds will also go towards paying for ASL interpreters and live captioners. 

As a part of 18 Million Rising’s Love Letters to Movement Leaders initiative, this workshop on abolition and decarceration will feature Emily Suh (Survived and Punished) and Nate Tan (Asian Prisoner Support Committee). In this 90 minute workshop, we’ll explore their work on stopping ICE transfers and the prison-to-deportation pipeline, supporting incarcerated people, and letter writing as a powerful tool for abolitionist organizing. Participants will write short love letters to two incarcerated comrades, Patti Waller and Tien Pham, who are fighting for freedom from deportation and imprisonment right now.

Letter writing is transformative. We believe letter writing breaks the isolation that prison walls create and affirms that all incarcerated people deserve care, love, and support.

Date: September 26

Time: 1 pm – 2:30 pm ET / 10 am – 11:30 am PT (90 minutes)

Access info: We will have ASL interpretation and live captioning during the event and will be recording the event to post later.

This workshop is part of Love Letters to Movement Leaders, an initiative from 18 Million Rising to connect Asian Americans to our legacy, each other, and our collective leadership.
