actions for abolition


Do you know what they’re plotting with #CopCity?

#CopCity, is a massive, $90 million+ police facility that will serve as a training ground for cops nationwide and worldwide in suppressing protests and movements challenging the carceral state more violently.

As abolitionists and organizers of Mutual Aid + Solidarity networks, we must take action against #CopCity and in defense of the Black, poor, and working-class communities targeted by policing and state sanctioning, and in defending the sacred, the Weelaunee Forest, land of the Mvskoke people.

urgent call to action: free krystal clark!

Our friend and comrade, Krystal Clark is a Correspondent for Prison Radio, reporting on the conditions at Women’s Huron Valley in Ypsilanti, Michigan.

Krystal is in critical need of our help. For the last 13 years, she has been slowly tortured by the conditions inside the prison. Exposure to mold, lack of basic health care, and retaliation from guards for speaking out have caused Krystal’s health to deteriorate so dramatically that her face has suffered paralysis and she relies on a walker for mobility. Krystal is 39 years old. When she entered Women’s Huron Valley in 2011 she was a healthy woman and now, a doctor outside of the prison has assured her she won’t survive if she stays at Huron Valley.

Please join us in taking any and all of these action steps to keep Krystal safe:

1. Send an email using this text with the subject line “URGENT MEDICAL CARE FOR KRYSTAL CLARK #435064” to the following:
