When: Wednesday, April 16, 2014 @ 3:00 – 6:00 pm
Where: SEM II E1105 @ TESC
What: This workshop will look at the ways the prison industrial complex not only specifically targets folks with disabilities but also actively props up ableism. We’ll also explore how ableism widens the pipelines (such as the school to prison pipeline) that help to create the PIC, by creating paths and norms in terms of who is criminalized, prison return rates, and notions of violence, justice and bodies. This workshop aims to help participants build a deeper understanding of both ableism and the prison industrial complex so that we can all move forward with clarity and motivation to link up prison abolition and disability justice work in shared struggle.
