WHO WE ARE

We are Abolitionist

We believe that prisons, police and all other institutions that inflict violence on Black people must be abolished and replaced by institutions that value and affirm the flourishing of Black lives.

We believe in centering the experiences and leadership of the most marginalized Black people, including but not limited to those who are trans and queer, women and femmes, currently and formerly incarcerated, immigrants, disabled, working class, and poor.

We believe in transformation and a radical realignment of power:
The current systems we live inside of need to be radically transformed, which includes a realignment of global power. We are creating a proactive, movement-based vision instead of a reactionary one.

We build kinship with one another:

We draw from political lessons, grow in our leadership, and expanding our base to build a stronger movement.

We are anti-capitalist:

We believe and understand that Black people will never achieve liberation under the current global racialized capitalist system.
