In the United States, many advocates of a Green New Deal have begun to include calls for prison abolition in the plan. In Canada, however, the connection between a Green New Deal and prison abolition has yet to be made explicit or widespread. So how can the climate movement work for prison abolition as a core strategy for shared liberation and a society where all are welcome and safe?
On August 27th, you’ll have a chance to hear three brilliant organizers, artists, and educators speak about the thinking that has driven their prison abolition work for decades; you’ll hear us connect prison abolition and the Green New Deal; and you’ll get to ask some questions of your own!
Panelists: El Jones, Robyn Maynard, Cedar Hopperton

I thought I had registered for this but I don’t see an obvious way to access it. What am I doing wrong?
I have spent most of my adult life in prison, and I have challenged the prison system in Canada, sometimes successfully.
This would likely be of interest to me, and I possibly might have something to contribute.
Unfortunately, I did not see this comment until after the webinar. My suggestion is to contact Jody Chan.
