      EVENT DETAILS
      Beyond Alternatives to the Prison Industrial Complex

      Along with local organizers from The Steady Collective and Blue Ridge Anarchist Black Cross, we're hosting a virtual author event with Victoria Law and Maya Schenwar, co-authors of a new book exploring the harmful consequences of "alternatives to incarceration".

      In "Prison by Any Other Name," two activist journalists reveal the way the kinder, gentler narrative of reform can obscure agendas of social control and challenge us to question the ways we replicate the status quo when pursuing change. A foreword by Michelle Alexander situates the book in the context of criminal justice reform conversations. Finally, the book offers a bolder vision for truly alternative justice practices.

      This online event will include ASL interpretation. To register, send an email to venue@firestorm.coop with the subject title "Prison by Any Other Name" and we'll send you the registration link.
