Beyond the Bars Conference, Towards Freedom: Violence, Safety and Abolition in 2021

March 18, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 11:00 am, repeating until March 21, 2021


The 11th annual Beyond the Bars Conference, Towards Freedom: Violence, Safety and Abolition in 2021, will be held virtually this year, in partnership with Haymarket Books.

Thursday, March 18 through Sunday, March 21, 2021

This year, organizers hope to create deep and thoughtful conversations about the many forms of violence that our society has experienced; to surface and examine the ways in which movements are pushing for community and public safety in ways that do not reenforce the carceral state; and to explore why abolition has become so prevalent in the conversations, strategies and demands in the work of transforming approaches to justice and safety. In addition, they will take time to honor and celebrate the leadership of women impacted by incarceration, and the leadership of Black women, and all that we have and can learn from their work. And they will spend time building and amplifying the work of grassroots organizing.

There is a ticket for each day of the conference. Thursday, Friday and Saturday will be streamed on YouTube via Haymarket Books. Sunday workshops will happen on Zoom. You will be sent links for each day you register for.
