As the movement to end the injustices of the prison and policing systems grows stronger, we are collaborating with groups to hold spaces for people to connect, chill, and build with each other! This is our first event, and we’ll have more in the future.

Join us for games, music, and food: it’s not a meeting, it’s a time to connect with each other, share your experiences, and learn about what we can do to make a change. Instead of prisons tearing about our communities, we will build community with each other and tear all prison walls down.

Who is building together?

Black and Latinx people and people of color. People who have been affected by prisons or police, or seen your loved ones affected. Queer and trans folks. Women and femmes, cis and trans. Youth. People new to the movement to fight prisons and policing, and people who’ve been in the movement for a long time.
